I am basically looking for a faster way to install an operating system. I just want to know if i can make a contraption that could allow me to mount a 2.5" SATA/IDE hard disk with XP/VISTA/7 setup files loaded in it in proper bootable way that could start installation itself from that cd/dvd rom bay when I choose to boot from cd/dvd bay.
Maybe it is a bit confusing but i think cd/dvd bay on a laptop should be faster than a usb because cd/dvd ide bay got loads of pins (and you know sata is already fast) that could probably produce more transfer speeds than a standard usb port.
Now i needed to be encouraged to start my contraption. If my theory is right i will try to find some laptop cd/dvd ide/sata bay to standard 2.5" ide/sata converter. Then bum! i can get one of my ide or sata drivers for this operation.
If you still confused about the thing in my mind imagine this. A laptop cd rom with actually a 2.5" hard disk in it. Got that!
I am looking for your help guys.
