I am thinking of a great deal of possibilities with my IDE/ATA=>USB adapter.... provided that the target OS is capable of understanding that it is being booted from such device... (I don't know if any of the Windows would be able to do that).


No, USB-driver stack isn't low-level enough for loading WindowsNT/2000/XP.

Win9x may actually boot OK.

Still seeking to have a "take-away" NT/XP user or installation in an external USB hard drive, <sigh>
