    Is it possible to not install windows on my internal mbp, and instead install it all on an external drive?

    It's possible, but not easy with an MBP. The guide requires you to remove the internal HDD during install, so an MB or Mac Pro is much easier.

    If you can live with virtualization (VMWare/Parallels) do that, and just put your image on the external.
