My idea is to by an external hard drive for my new Mac Book, i want to run book camp and have Windows Xp run of the Hard Drive, ive seen some places say it can be done and some say it cant. If it is possible is it straight forward and if someone knows of an in depth installation guide to this, it would be great.

Thanks

Adam :p

Boot camp only works on internal drives.

It's really easy in the macbook (non pro), and won't void your warranty either.

Seagate drives come with a 5 year warranty and seem to do well in tests.
