Windows 2K/XP on a removable disk

By Josep_M ·
When I install Windows 2000 on a removable disk, the OS detect It like "removable"
Is there some "utilitie/registry edit" that can made the disk appears like non removable?
Old versions of Iomega tools/drivers can made It (but in Windows 9X)

Thanks a lot

Windows 2K/XP on a removable disk

Greetings,

There is another option to make a "non-removable" disk removable.

You can buy (for around $45.00) a docking bay for a "removable" hard drive. It can lock into place to be recognized as a second (or third) hard drive, and it can simply be unlocked and slid out of its bay.

The docking bay itself consists of two components. The rail into which a carrier is easilly slid in and out of, which takes up one of the 5-1/2" bays in your case. Inside the carrier is a standard hard drive.

It takes no time at all to install, it's setup as a standard hard drive, and it can be removed and carried away in about 1 second.

Just a thought.

Regards,

Maxwell

The removable hard disk is an internal SCSI Iomega Jaz 2 GB.
All my hard disks are SCSI
