    NO! you can't install the OS to a usb drive.
  2. it is possible with some motherboards but you loose performace big time because of USB limitations - dont bother
  3. If the drive is connected via USB, the 7 installer will not let you put 7 on that drive. You must, as stated above, connect the drive via eSata by either using an enclosure, or a dock.
