Any operating systems that you think would do other than ME?

Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)

You could probably try win XP

Also, I have an external hard drive and do you think it would work?

Win 7 Pro

The external hard drive is probably USB, if so, no, it won't work.
While XP will most likely work, even the latest (SP 3) might have trouble running well on that system.

Run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to know for sure.
