    I used BootCamp to partition my iMac's HD and install Vista. After doing so, I remembered I have a USB 2.0 80 gig hard drive with nothing on it. Would it be possible to put Vista on that? I'd prefer to just move the partition if possible, if not, I'd reinstall Vista. I know the Intel Macs can boot from USB, I just don't know if they'll boot Windows from USB. Thanks.

    Is this possible to do on a Mac Mini? I can't disconnect the internal drive without opening it up, which I would not like to do....ideas?

    Read the sticky. There is an alternative method which does not require removal of the hard drive.
