  1. buy a real laptop..... netbooks are horrible at running full win7, thats why they only run win 7 starter edition on them.

    What do u mean by I have W7 ultimate on my external HD ?
  3. Providing that the OS on the external works completely fine, and that the Hdd's are the same size... you can just switch them, and complete a update to retrieve your drivers.

    However this would probably involve voiding your warranty, and cracking open the external HDD. Get some more feedback before you make a final decision.

    I copied the installation disc to the external hard drive as there is no optical drive on the netbook. It is a full working copy which will install from setup.
