I rather have my Bootcamp volume on an external TB SSD drive. Currently, I have it one of my HDD inside my 2009 Mac Pro. I also installed Windows 8 directly onto a volume inside that HDD. So it's strange why we can't install Windows 8 directly to a TB external drive in the nMP. It has to be installed directly onto the internal SSD of the nMP, then cloned over to a TB external drive, if I want Bootcamp on an external TB SSD. Instead of cloning it over, maybe I'll just leave the Bootcamp volume on the internal SSD of the nMP. Is there any advantage having the Windows partition on the internal SSD of nMP for gaming?
