Default External hdd - 04-10-2010, 11:16 PM

So I just found out my internal hard drive is fried so is it possible to use my vostro a90? (I think it's that one - the one that is the mini 9 for business) and install os x on an external USB 2 Hard drive and would it run fast enough? Or even a. 16gb flash drive would it work?

And would I have problems during the install as it would essentially be copying from one USB hard drive to another

Replace your hard drive!
what is the point of a mini with an external HD?
It loses it practicality
