Making a windows 7 install hardware independent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all, last year my college gave us a windows image for our esata drives that we were able to run on just about any computer. I've recently installed windows 7 on my esata drive with my home computer and now i can't make it work at school. I've tried using sysprep on the install but it still doesn't work. Does anyone know how to set this up?

  • Use 'Device Manager' to uninstall any unnecessary device drivers, especially any that are unique to your home computer. Then see if Windows boots at school.
