I do believe that you can buy a adapter that will allow an external harddrive to plug into an ide or sata slot. I assume that with one of those it would function like an internal drive.

much the reverse.

you needn't have an adapter to make external hdd internal. Just yank it out of its case and fix it like a normal hard drive.

but this beats its perpose.

I have heard of some hacks to force windows vista into a live USB like mode, but I can't get the links at the moment.

I didn't know that. Of course, I never really had the desire to take the case off of an external hard drive. I always figured they were built specifically for usb connection. Learning that they are just pre-converted internal drives is disappointing.
