    I had a friend of mine tell me there was a special version of Windows 7 you could get that would let you install windows to a flash drive and use it as an OS for running and booting. NOT INSTALLING.

    I want to call BS, because of all of the Google searches that are only about making a Windows 7 installer drive.

    But I have read some posts on this forum that have explained it's next to impossible...

    I would have to agree.

    I just want to call what a JOKE

    I like to use all three OSes at my leisure, but this is a major JOKE.

    SORRY.

    I guess the only OS it's possible with is Windows 8?

    Laters...

    I mean when you think to yourself "It's gotta be possible", then you google and nothing...

    WOW

    There's only one company that makes it easy to boot/multiboot and that is Apple.
    You want to start from a flash disk, CAN.
    You want to start from a external HD/SSD, CAN.

    And all nicely done, hold Option key at startup and there are all the bootable options, try that with any other OS/Brand.
