    You could do that with virtualization but Boot Camp works (normally) on the boot volume.

    Hi zoby,
    generally, you can't install via Bootcamp on any external...

    You can however install Windows on an external drive, but without using bootcamp (read the other topics on that subject). And I don't think you'll have the ability to use Parallels in Coherence mode, but I did not try it.
