    I am assuming you are doing this to avoid a re-partitioning of your main hard drive? It is possible, however your 8GB drive is probably slow. As long as you are just booting off it and don't mind the wait, sure.

    Why install MCE?
    What OS are you running now?
    What do you need to do, that makes you want MCE?
    There are plenty of PVR apps that will make a normal XP computer act like MCE, without the cost.
