    The title basically says it all. If I were to install Mac OS X onto a USB drive and then boot my computer from this drive would it be possible for me to install software onto my computer? Thanks in advance!

    In the core of a black hole.
    Yes, many times it is just an App which you then can drag to the Application folder, if it is an Installer it can almost always,if not always, be changed to the other HD/SSD in the Installer.

    OK. Thanks for the reply. I'll probably just try it out and see if it works.
