Dual OS's Using External Hard Drive

By mailrick ·
I have Windows XP OS on my pc. I would like to install an evaluation edition of Windows Server 2003 on an external hard drive to use for homework/labwork for my college classes. Is this feasible, and how can I do it?

Its possible depending on your motherboard

But it depends what you mean by external hard drive. If you mean a USB enclosure with a hard drive or a USB drive your motherboard will need to support USB booting. If you mean a removable drive bay (which I'd recommend over USB for speed reasons) then its much easier and should be compatable with anything. Read up on dual booting and then you should be able to get it going.
