How to install my game on my removable hard drive.

I need to know if I can install my game on my removable hard drive and if so, how? Thank you


Hi shananagan,

Yes, it is possible to install a program on an external hard drive.

Most of the program\game installation wizard allows you to choose a destination drive to install on; You can choose your external hard drive for the installation files reside.

If the game setup button does not give you a choice, in this case you cannot install it on the external hard drive.

Normally, Small\flash games can be installed on the external hard drive.

Note: When you install a program on the external hard drive, it made an entry in the registry of the operating system, the installed program may or may not work when the external hard drive is disconnected and re connected.

Thank you, and in what concerns:

    You can move the windows on a new computer

    If it's a full license or upgrade retail - Yes. You can move it to another computer as long as it is installed on a single computer at a time (and if it's a Windows 7 Upgrade version the new computer must have its own license of qualification). The previous Windows installation on your old computer must be formatted or deleted. You will have to perhaps call Microsoft and explain what happened to complete activation. Turning it on the second computer will automatically be in effect 'disable' the license for the first computer.

    If it's an OEM license - don't. OEM licenses, including Windows preinstalled on a computer before purchase and Windows purchased separately, are related to the first computer, they are installed on and cannot be transferred to another computer. To install Windows on another computer, you will need to buy another copy.

  • Dell Inspiron 3520 - hard drive failure - how to install Windows 8 on the new hard drive

    I bought Dell Inspiron 3520. My hard drive has stopped working completely. It was stated as dead hard drive by diagonstic center.

    I have now bought a new hard drive but have lost data and windows 8 preload on the original hard drive. Dell did not provide any recovery disk for Windows 8 pre-loaded on portable hard drive. How can I then install windows 8 / 10 on my new hard drive?

    The .iso image file official 10565 has only:

    • Overview of the House of insiders
    • Overview of the Insider Pro

    Unfortunately, there are 5 editions of Windows 10 and so 3 are missing. If your key is not automatically entered and accepted, it's probably a simple language edition or edition N.

    When Microsoft release 10586 - TH2 - 1511 Version they will probably have an .iso that contains all 5 editions in 1 .iso or alternatively 5 .isos distinct (I hope as the first case that it will make Windows installation much easier).

  • How to install windows 7 on an external HARD drive (or alternative?)


    So I have a MacBook Air (13 inch, mid 2013) with 128 GB SSD and 4 GB of RAM running OS X El Capitan. I would like to install Windows 7 as a secondary OS, I did that the 128 GB SSD, I don't have a lot of room to play to have 2 OS on a single disc. So I was wondering if you can optionally install Windows on external drive USB secondary.

    I've read about people with the Macbook Pro who did this through the installation of Windows on their main drive and then Exchange this one at the port of superdrive, but as I look, none of this is possible.

    If this is not possible, I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on how this can be achieved, but without wasting a lot of space, perhaps using VM Virtual Box or an alternative?

    Thank you


    The MacBook Air (13 inch, mid 2013) - technical specifications, you have a Thunderbolt port. Find a TB external drive and install Windows. You cannot use USB/FW drives. Cloning of third party software may operate, but you must be aware of Windows licenses.

    1. what operating system is installed on the computer?
    2. What is the brand and model of the computer?
    3. have you downloaded the driver from the manufacturer's Web site?

    I suggest you to check and to provide us with the information about the installed operating system.

    I suggest you make sure that you have downloaded the latest driver on the manufacturer's Web site. After you get the driver file, you can use the steps in the sectiondownload and update a driver yourself and check if that helps you install the driver correctly.
