here is what i need. i want to run some craigslist "businesses" like jailbreaking, rooting, amateur video and music stuff, etc. since it's an easy way to make a little money on the side. my laptop is a Toshiba A205-S5880. could i just get a laptop hard drive and plug it into the "Blank" space? here is a pic from google:

right now it is booting Windows 7, so can i install Vista/7 on the second drive, and boot into that when i need that drive? is it possible to make is so that the two drives don't recognize each other?

Well aren't you rude. Win 7 has gave me **** since day one, most of my programs i use has issues, drivers....oh gosh don't get me started...Nvidia issues, some games don't run the best (older ones) and the updates won't work right. Only reason i have left that i am glad i went to 7 is VISTA sucks RAM and is even bugger.

Win7 has the FEWEST issues of any M$ OS thats come out since 98, hence my comment, not that you yourself are ******ed (just your comment).

Ok. So youre one person who had a singular bad experience with Win7. Doesnt make it crap though does it? If Win7 can take my sig rig and make it boot up in less than 20 mins from start of install to Desktop, and EVERYTHING WORKS (DFI mobo, PCU, GPU etc etc etc) and then doesnt complain when i load proprietary drivers, thats impressive. And leads me to believe that theres a loose nut behind your wheel maybe?

Well i'm sure i am not alone, heck Google has plenty of people asking how to fix stuff. Course having 64-Bit might be some of the reason, seems like 32-Bit is more User Friendly...

Hmm... cant say i agree, i run 64bit on my sig rig (and it was 'upgraded' from the Beta), my new FX rig (clean install), my wifes old 939 DFI build and her ASUS EEE (upgraded from Home Basic via Product key) and my Lenovo x61S (clean install) with no problems at all. Maybe its the person doing the install (no offense meant).

(no offense meant) is like saying "With all do respect", but your an idiot. You mean it badly, but your trying to seem like your not... Well Trust me, as many times i have Installed and tinkered with ME, XP, VISTA and 7, i know what i am doing.

All i can think is, my CPU, Mobo, GPU and HDD don't exactly agree with 7. There were all made back in XP Days...so yeah.

and for the record, i have better things to do then Flame with you, so i won't even try. "Fighting on the internet is like running in the Special Olympics, even if you win, your still ******ed!"

I'm just curious - I don't get needing two different HDD's just to do CL stuff?

If it's for the safety of personal data or something, just use a non admin account instead of your admin account?

I checked on Google and some people say the "blank" space doesn't have a SATA connector, so you'd have to hook that up all by yourself. I don't think that would be easy. Anyways you could put in a 2nd HDD elsewhere. If you encrypt both HDDs I'm pretty sure you won't be able to access between the 2.
