I have a Macbook connected to an external HD+hub firewiere/usb.
I read in some forum that we could run Windows via bootcamp in a firewire HD. So i followed the instructions but it doesen't works:

I first installed Mac OS in the external HD, then i downloaded the latest firmware and Mac OS software. Then i Installed BootCamp, but i couldn't even partition said bootcamo can't partition external HD.

I would really apprciate if someone could help me, and tell me if there's any way to partition the external HD via bootcamp or via any other way, so i can install Windows in the external HD...

Thanks in advance.
