    My situation:
    - I have an installation disk of windows Xp/7 and of Mac OSX 10.5.8
    - I have an external harddisk (320GB, USB)
    - I have an iMac (PPC G5)
    - I have a windows pc (Xp/7)
    - I want to install windows on the external harddisk and boot it with my mac (without bootcamp).
    extra: Will the windows run slow ? (cuz it's USB)

    Can you guys help me ?!:confused:

    Sorry cyragia, but you cannot run Windows on a PowerPC chip.
