    Use Hard Drive on hot swap as installation disk. Possible?


    My Flash Drive's missing so I've thought about this idea.

    I have a spare HDD that I connect to an external (which emulates a flash drive. Every time I remove the HDD from it I make sure it is removed safely from my PC just like we do with a flash drive).

    I am just wondering if I can do this by using rufus? I need to downgrade my laptop to windows 7 right now because it is getting even more annoying as usual.

    I don't see any reason it won't work, I believe I would use MCT to make the drive bootable to install. I just find it easier than RUFUS fewer steps
