I read many times Windows 7 is unable to boot from an external FireWire drive but I wonder if Windows 8 is able to do so.
I need to run Windows on my Mac but only very few times so my idea was to move it all to an external drive. I have one of the first Intel Macs so running Windows in a virtual machine is not really fun. The performance is just too poor.
Adding a Boot Camp partition to my internal drive is also not possible at the moment.
