Windows 10: Laptop works with no HD

    Laptop works with no HD

    If I disconnect the HD from my PC it does not start.

    But my wife's old Compaq Laptop, provided is powered on mains it works OK with the HD removed.
    And the 3 partiotions I made originally on the HD are still visible & contain all the files & connects on the Internet OK.

    The properties of its C:/ main partition show 145GBs.

    How does it work without the HD where presumably I installed Win 8.1 & all the other programs & files.

    And the same with my old Acer notebook.
