I had already used driver booster before seeing your post but everything seems to be working now.
Im now ready to copy my os to my external hard drive if your ready but i would like to have other os on my external hard drive as well. i have to leave around 5:15Pm UTC-06:00 Central time and i wont be able to do anything with my computer until tomorrow after that time.
Edit: I want to thank you for all the help you have given me so far.
Edit2: Basically what i need help with now is copying my os and all its contents to a external usb hard drive but have enough room to have a couple other os on it. I have clonezilla on a usb.
One last question and if you dont know the answer then i will create another thread.
Have you ever used Windows Vista/2008/7/2008 R2 Fast Installer?
If so can you please help me get it working? It creates the windows files on my usb but it wont boot.
I have an idea but i need you to tell me if it would work. I want to get a hard drive and then connect it to a desktop pc and install windows 7 with my cd and then connect the hard drive to my laptop with a hard drive enclosure. Would that work or would there be some problems?
If it was plugged into USB then no as you cannot boot off external drives. If it was connected to a SATA port then maybe but I doubt Windows would be happy you may find your plagued with bsod's. Usually moving an HDD directly to another machine means a re-install.
