Using generic USB dvd drive on Macbook Air
I assume you will be able to use a generic external USB DVD/Burner through the Macbook AIR USB port.
I have a jury-rigged USB DVD/Burner (internal full size DVD/Burner---ATA/USB convertor) which I've used before on my intel iMAC (don't ask me why but if you tried to use an Windows XP upgrade disc on Bootcamp, you'll know why). It has a separate power supply.
I am thinking that I can use this to create bootcamp since I don't think you can bootcamp windows with a disc image like you can with Parallels. I've read you can't load Windows to bootcamp using the new AirDisk mode.....
Anyone see any potential problems with what I said?
