    I have a feeling I'm going to get the n00b remark quite a bit, since I am new to Macs (I've had my first MBP for about 2 weeks now), but I'm going to ask anyways.

    I have a 500 GB western digital external hard drive that I use with Time Machine, but I use no where close to 500 GB, just scored a deal on it (via eBay).

    I want to run Windows through Boot Camp just for games. But I don't really want to use my MBP HD for that. It would make more sense for me to partition part of my external HD for Windows, since I would only play games when I am home, and I leave my back up at home.

    Is this possible?

    I tried looking it up, but I didn't find anything really close enough to my situation.

    Ah frick, I just realized I posted this in the wrong forum. Can a mod or someone move this to the Windows on the Mac forum?
