    Hey everyone,

    I just had my computer's hard drive take a dump and I'm in the process of replacing it. I just put the new hard drive in and was getting ready to install Windows 7 from my droid but then I realized that I've never done this on a fresh hard drive without using a formatted bootdisk or formatted flashdrive

    I already have the Windows 7 Disk completely saved on my Droid and I was curious if there was a way to make my PC see my Droid as a boot disk and install Windows 7 straight from it! I scoured the forums for a while and this hasn't been discussed before. I thought it would be really cool addition feature if it could! My phone is already rooted and is currently running Bugless Beast (GREAT O/S)!

    Any input or suggestion would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Take you droid to a friends house and make a cd. Computer will not read phone without drivers.

    this would be cool if we could boot say Chrome OS off of the SD card.

    I already did that in the interim but asking about the future! I'm sure that the phone can be read the same way a bootable thumb drive can be I'm just curious as to how?
