Thanks a lot.

Ah that's not a problem, just put it into the machine, itll be listed as an external hdd in windows, open up pgp, itll be listed as an encrypted hard drive, put in the passphrase for it, and you will then have access to the data!

So if i can just clarify what you're trying to do.

You have your laptop hard drive, you connect that to your PC via a sata->usb and you want to know if you can BOOT from that laptop hard drive whilst its connected into your PC and then be able to encrypt it?

First of all confirm you can actually boot from it first, because booting from OS's taken from other machines creates a few issues (less so with 7, but still happen) before trying to encrypt it.  But I don't see why not.
