I just got my new Vantec IDE/SATA to 2.0 USB Adapter installed. I use it on my laptop to give me extra storage space.. or plan to.. this drive already has a good copy of Win 7 installed and i'd like to boot into it from the USB adapter so it will be easier for me to find out what i need to back up.
I did try to boot from USB and windows does start to load then crashes.. I don't know if it's due to the Vantec unit or if I just need to repair the MBR on the drive. The drive has been sitting in a safe place for about 8 months not being used.
