    Hi!

    Is it possible to leave the internal HD of an iMac untouched and tell Bootcamp to install Windows XP on an external Firewire HD?

    That would be the best option for me I think.

    Thanks for your feedback in advance!

    Boot Camp as-is wont let you install to an external drive. I have heard though that some people have managed it. I'd give you the link to where I read that but I cant find it.

    Personally I wouldn't try it. :D
