    Hello,

    I just ordered a 17" MBP AG and only need windows at home for gaming.

    If I can do this, what is the procedure?

    Best external drive?

    Thanks

    You can't, unless you could fool the Windows installer that your USB/FW drive is an IDE or SATA drive. I don't even think you can do it via ESATA.

    If you could, I don't think that you'd want to, anyway.
