    I want to install windows xp on my external drive and be able to boot from that when it is plugged in to my Macbook Pro. Is this possible? If so how do you do it? :confused:

    Also would like to know how to revert from boot camp and get the space back on my drive. The one on my macbook pro or the external drive. :)

    Their are a few threads on this subject knocking about just use MRoogle to find them, to reclaim your space on the internal you use bootcamp assistant again & if you did manage to get a bootable copy of XP on an external to reclaim it you would need to reformat it
