I installed Bootcamp on my initial iMac, which crashed. The hard drive was undamaged.

I haven't installed Bootcamp on the replacement.

If I go into the partitioned hard drive which is now an external hard drive, could I log into Windows using Bootcamp? If so how would I do this as there is currently no way to close the internal hard drive down so as to access the old one's Windows partition?

I hope all this means something to somebody.

I'm dealing with a similar issue. What I'm going to try is to hook up the external drive and simply create a disk image (using disk utility) for the old bootcamp partition. Once that is done I can just use bootcamp assistant to load the disk image of the partition I once had onto my new drive. Here's the link with a few other ideas as well
