    just like the topic says, I was wondering

    if I install windows partition on the expresscard 32gb or 64gb just for the booting and main running of the program.

    And if it's possible, I was wondering how fast that would be @_@. would it be much faster than running on the internal hdd? (if u dont have SSD in this case)

    not just bootcamp, but if this is possible i wanna try this on vmware or parallels as well.

    any help would be appreciated.

    I know you can install a Parallels/Fusion partition on the expresscard ssd, I do it myself. I don't think its possible for bootcamp. but if you find out how to, please tell me!! I would love to have this setup!

    Speed would depend on what expresscard you get. I have a filemate 48gb which is pretty fast (see sig).
