  1. Ok so i have an old desktop with around 512mb of ram. I would like to test out WHS but I can't because i only have a 55gb HDD (WHS requires at least 65gb).

    Is it possible to install it onto my 1TB external HDD? (I know it is possible with XP but im not sure about WHS).

    Thanks in advance for any help :)

    even if possible I wouldn't install on an external drive for performance reasons. if you don't want to buy a new hdd why don't you swap them. use the bigger on inside the desktop and the smaller one in the external box.
