    same as using an external HDD in USB3, but you should use a USB3 stick for better performance, otherwise it's going to be extremely slow.

    you have 2 questions here.

    1) is can you use windows from usb....yes you can

    2) u dont want to use parallels or can not install windows w/o running those applications.

    you can't just install windows by popping in windows 7 disc with osx setting up certain things up first. *or can you?*
