    Just curious, can the newer (2013-2015) iMacs boot from an external thunderbolt or USB disk if their internal disk dies?

    Indeed! I've installed my Windows system on an external USB3 hard drive, it works perfectly :)

    I've ordered a new iMac 5k and I'd like to install Windows 10 on an external Usb3 SSD: can I use boot camp?
