External Bootcamp SSD Thunderbolt Solution?

So I ordered a 27" iMac and am expecting it this week. I needed the 3TB fusion drive so I know Bootcamp is out. My question is, can someone link me to a complete solution for running windows 100% off of an external thunderbolt drive?

Crap! These people are all saying they still have to partition their internal drives to get it to work! That isn't an option from what I've heard on the 3TB fusion imac correct?

There has to be a way to do this without partitioning...
