Windows XP continues to run once HDD removed

What happens when you remove the boot volume and re-insert? - Nothing :) - Windows continues to run right through until the HDD is put back in.

My colleague Dave Cromar was asking me how to remove the hard disk from his laptop (HDD due to be replaced today) so I went round to show him. He had already removed the screws, so I just slid it out of the chassis of the laptop - it was that point where I realised his machine was still switched on =D

We put it back in, and to our great surprise Windows XP continued to function - so we did it again but this time with the camcorder!

He has continued to use it all day without a reboot, and no problems. Check the link for the video on youtube.
