The SATA port on my Notebook (Aspire 5810T) is broken.
I went to a repair center to see about repairing but it was too expensive just for a try. Now I'm left with an HDD SATA 320GB and my Notebook.
I heard that using the "box system" I could actually use my HDD as an external HDD.
With this tutorial I can install Windows 7 on a external HDD without losing data, and as my HDD has already Windows 8 installed...
The question is: Can I Install Windows 7 over my HDD with Windows 8, or boot my HDD with the box enclosure without losing data?
Current OS: Ubuntu 12.04 on USB device.
