I want to run Windows 7 from a flash drive on my Mac Book. I have a 16 gB flash drive and speed is not a critical factor. More importantly I would rather save the room on my hard drive, and I don't like having multiple partitions. I've done many Google searches and all I find are articles about installing Windows 7 from a flash drive. The closest thing I could find was: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=856812 but that only mentions want I want to do. The information I have gathered is conflicting, and most of it revolves around XP (I think W7 gets buried by the 'installing from a flash drive' articles because of the increase of netbooks without optical drives). People also say it's not possible to install XP on a flash drive, but people have made live distributions of XP for flash drives so it defiantly is. This is the most tech savy Mac community I have found, and looks to be my best bet.
