Hi everyone,

I'm having some trouble getting windows 7 up and running.

I'm trying to run it off a USB 3 HDD (not flash). I installed it just like is said in the guide but on boot Windows 7 I can't even get to set up because it just goes BSOD on me. I have installed Windows 8 on another machine using the same way. It gave me some problems the first few times but eventually it worked. I don't have a license for Windows 8 and gerting used to the changes was a bit much for me, so wasn't willing to deal with the wallet damage.

I'm using the 64 bit professionalversion I downloaded from here:

I'm using a brand new MacBook Air 13, which is

Core i5 2.?ghz
Intel HD graphics

Any help much appreciated!
Windows 7/2008 R2 does not have built-in USB 3.0 support, so Windows 7/2008 R2 will have to be booted from a USB 2.0 port.
Thanks very much!

Will give it a go.
Apologies for the double post.

I tried attaching it via USB 2 but no difference. Same blue screen of death.

Any more help would be appreciated.
