Hi there I have a W530 with a Primary SSD. I want to add a second HDD in the UltraBay and use that to run a seperate Operating system (Windows 7 x64). This is because the two parts of my company have two different "build images" and OS versions & domains and I need a physically seperate disk to be able to run the two builds and am quite reluctant to carry around two seperate PCs.
I know there are problems bith Blue-screening when actually running Win7 off a USB HDD, but I want to check whether running on the UltraBay will work and whether I will simply be able to load and rund a second OS on the drive. Windows also does not allow installs to USB or removable drives.
Does the OS See the drive in the UltraBay as a "USB Peripheral" or as an internal disk drive? Are there any performance issues with the UltraBay?
