Boot to an external hard drive

Hi karlos,

I have tested this on an external 1TB drive with both USB3.0 & eSata and it works very good.

Just remember Win8(+) supports native booting from USB3.0, but not Win7 - (it will crash on a usb3.0 port)

Win7 will still run, have to plug it into a usb2 port, but it will boot a lot slower.
