That's good.

You also have the option of using Portable Apps but it wont apply to each software that you want to use.

You also have the option of using virtualization softwares like MVPC or VMware but they eat huge resources.

The best option that I suggest (and I also use it personally) is using Mojopac.
Check the video on the site http://www.mojopac.com/
Check the requirements on the download page and give it a try.

Only one thing I didn't like about the free edition is that you cannot work on files shared anywhere else on the drive (except in the same folder tree) and not even on your desktop fixed drives.

Try it and I'm sure you would love it.

Post your comments after using it

Yes it can be done and it is easy:
1.) Make sure you have at least 40GB HDD with no partition.
2.) Required OS is to be installed on it.
3.) Reboot your PC and enter the boot menu and choose to boot from the external drive.
4.) Make sure there is no previous windows on your PC, if it is already:
- First, install the windows on HDD and re run the windows installation and format your PC
- Note/Caution = Donot reinstall the windows on your PC's HDD.
4.) Then your PC will be booted from your HDD and there you go, you are done with an external OS.
