I would like to install Windows 8 on an external hard drive and run Windows from said ext hard drive in order to run a full diagnostic on my internal hard drive (which I think might be having problems, but that is not what I want to discuss in this topic). How would I go about this process? 


A friend of mine was talking about master/slave drives, but I don't know how that works. Can someone please enlighten me?

If you really want to do this faster and not read a bit then I would just use a linux live cd.
