Thread Starter 
i am so confused, i have an iso file and i want to install it on a external hard drive. i don't have a cd burner so i can't burn it? and the external hard drive is bare. can someone help me?

rephrase question: how do you burn an iso on an external hard drive? and use it to install the program.

I'm not sure if I got it right, but one can't burn anything on a HDD (external or not). An iso can be burned on a CD or a DVD using a soft like imageburn or mounted using poweriso and then installed on any drive.

You need to mount the iso on some program like daemon tools and it will come up as a virtual drive. Then when you go to setup you should be able to install it on to the external HDD.

^ yes?
