    I searched and could not find an answer. I currently have boot camp, win 7 installed and mountain lion on my main internal drive.

    I plan on adding an external thunderbolt ssd and using this as my osx boot drive.

    My question is do I need to remove boot camp from my main internal hard drive? Once I get the external ssd setup, I'm just going to use the internal for storage...

    Wasn't sure if I could still boot into win 7 (on internal drive) with osx on an external drive...?

    Thanks in advance...

    I don't see why you couldn't boot into windows 7.

    I'm planning on going with this setup as well. If you get this configuration up and running, I'd like to know the results.
