    Is it possible to install Windows 7 onto the Bootcamp partition on my MBA via a USB External HDD or is this only possible with the MBA superdrive that is sold by Apple?

    If this is possible, please post steps on how to do this.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Not sure if you're interested, but this works a treat.

    Would you guys recommend XP sp3 or Win7 x64 on the MBA 2010 (or upcoming 2011)?
