Windows 8 to External hard drive?

So I have a nice, new blank hard drive and a macbook. I was wondering if I could install Windows 8 onto that hard drive so I wouldn't have to partition the hard drive that's currently in my MacBook. Would it work the same way? I know that Apple doesn't have Windows 8 drivers yet so it wouldn't work well with the partition thing... but I installed Parallels and I don't like how it works. Sooo I was wondering if I could just install Windows 8 cleanly onto that external drive, and how I would do it from a USB.
