just out of curiosity, is it possible to install windows 7 onto a memory stick?
and if so does that mean if i plug it into any pc/laptop, set bios to read memory stick first then i could load this up as it would have my settings and programs on it?
a b $ Windows 7

Yes / no! Yes. you can install win7 onot an usb stick. No, it will not run as you want. First of all an usb stick is way to slow to run windows from it. Second your installation will only have the chipset drivers ans other properties for the installation system. Third thing is, that windows will ask for an activation every time you stick it in a different system until the key finally gets blocked by M$.
