My Dell Mini 9 is running Windows XP Home SP3. I would like to upgrade it using an external HDD, my 8GB SSD could not handle it. (Insane though)
Is there some way to install it and boot from external HDD?

I'm surprised it runs XP with only an 8GB SSD.... I thought the minimum system requirements for XP were 10GB of free hard drive space.

You're better off upgrading that drive than using an external hard drive.
