Hey guys.

I've been thinking about buying a seperate, blank USB hard-drive.

Would it be possible to somehow install Windows 7 onto that, and plug that in whenever I want to use bootcamp? And then install games onto the same hard drive that I want to run in Windows?

Windows last time checked will not install on an external drive. Maybe you could put the HDD inside your computer whatever it may be, install whatever OS you are using and using Bootcamp install Windows 7.

Always helps if you provide model and operating system details.

even if it would let you run windows from an external, it would be sloooooooooow. especially for games.

bootcamp is the winner here.

harry is correct. Windows can not be booted from an external hard drive as that is a design by Microsoft to thwart piracy. Even if you somehow got it on the external, it would not activate.
