Hello , i have a MBA 2012 11'' ,

and i have dual boot OSX and windows 7 but the free space on both is very little. Is it possible to install windows 7 on an external HDD and run them from there ? i have a WD 1TB EX HDD ...

that install Windows 7 in a external HDD can be difficult.....still, I did some google and found this:

http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7-to-usb-external-hard-drive-must-read/

Provided that guide works, you have to figure out/google about booting W7 from the HDD, but:
