I know it's imilar to http://superuser.com/questions/68435/install-windows-xp-to-usb-hard-drive-and-run-from-it but this time is for Windows 7.

I believe that it's not possible.

Even people that have installed Win7 on an internal disk, then put it into USB enclosure, report an error during the boot (example here from november 18, 2009).
