One possible solution would be an eSATA disk...

I tried to Google this, but every guide told me how to INSTALL Windows 7 beta off a USB drive.
This is not what I am trying to do.
I already have it installed on a SATA laptop drive, and have a USB dock for SATA drives.
I want to know if there is any way to boot Windows 7 off of the drive once its connected by USB.
I am aware that this is possible with Windows XP and Windows Vista, but only after applying a 3rd party patch that changes the way the system handles USB connections on boot.
And yes, I am also aware this will make it run slower too off USB 2.0 instead of the internal SATA connection, thats fine.
So, has there been any method discovered yet to boot Windows 7 off a USB drive?
