Your welcome Wolfgang.

KA, so as not to hijack Wolfgang's thread I've posted an answer in Hardware and Devices here:
An answer to a question in another Thread.

That is so cool Wolfgang and I am going to give that a run.
Now just a couple of queries.
1. Does the security on the 7 install cover the VM set up?
2. Instead of an external can I assume I could just set this up on another SSD or spinner in the machine via the docks or a regular bay?

ad1) No - the virtual system is a completely independent system.

ad2) of course. You can set it up on any disk (SSD or spinner) internal or external. I only use the external SSD because I had little space on my internal 60GB SSD but I had an extra SSD lying around. Plus, the external SSD allows me to attach it to any of my systems (where VMware Player is installed) and run it from there. Thus I can e.g. run my Windows 8 on any system with only 1 license (because VMware Player is the "system").

PS: Sorry for the late answer. But yesterday I had an eye operation (cataract) and my vision is still quite blurry.

Ok mate I was just concerned re the security and yes I have a couple of spare 120GB SSD's I can use in a bay as I am having problems with externals for some unknown reason.

Hope the eye is feeling ok now - have my own right eye being done on 10th October Not looking forward to that (yes ok a tiny pun LOL!!)

If your eye is done to get rid of the cataract, that is not a big operation. The worst part is that very bright laser. That bothered me. I already had the other eye done 5 years ago, but that eye has heavy macula degeneration and is very weak. The cataract correction takes appr. 6 weeks before the eye has it's full capacity back. That is the worst part.

Really no need to worry. If the doc knows what he is doing, you will be OK. I answered your PM.
