External dvd writer
\015 Hi every body, i am palnning to buy lg external dwd writer for my laptop(NEC VERSA M400), by using this external dvd writer is it posssible to change the operating system of my laptop will my laptop boot from external dvd writer?please let me know the solution. thanking u with regards karunakar\015
You would be able to boot from the external drive but you will not be able to run an operating system from it. It would allow you to install another operating system if that is what you mean? If i understand you correctly though, you would like to say perhaps, have windows xp on your laptop and maybe run windows vista on your external? Maybe get to choose which one to run. This is not possible. Sorry. I hope this helps!
