Specs: Max OS X
Just curious. I am new to mac. Is it possible to remove my hard drive from my PC, place it in an external drive, and boot my mac from the external drive having access to all my PC files and running windows. Seems like a long shot, but I thought I would ask

This will not work.
You cannot normally move a hard disk containing an OS from one computer to a different computer and expect it to work. The drivers would not work with the Mac hardware and the boot would fail.

You should be able to access the data on the drive but you could not run Windows from it.
