    I created a vista partition on my MBP but would like to use an external hard drive to install games on it and play it from the external. could I do this and how do I go about doing this?

    Thank you

    when you are installing the game, install it on to the external instead of the vista partition and you can run the program from there.

    Some games are very picky about where they install themselves, and insist on being in your C: drive no matter what you do. If the game you're playing allows installing in a location besides the default, you shouldn't have to partition the external drive if it's already in a format Windows can read (NTFS, FAT32, etc.).
