Do you mean to say you have the drive in an external cage ?

Or is this what you`re trying to use ?

You can not install windows 7 over usb, although some claim they have.

Why is the drive not in the computer ?

Well then either buy a new battery and re place it or just reset the bios to default settings.

I`ve enclosed a few pics of the best thing you can do to a laptop

Re setting the bios, you can do yourself. If you don`t know how, just ask.
