My laptop recently has stopped working. The hard drive was not damaged so I had that taken out. It is now connected to my other laptop via a USB adapter. I want to know if I can boot up from the hard drive connected by USB. Both hard drives have windows 7.
More about :booting previously internal hard drive
No, but there is always a slim chance. If you are just doing this to save some data (documents pic and such) then you do not have to boot from the drive just read it over USB like a normal external drive.
