    You would have to run win 7 in a virtual machine (VM), and store the VM on the external drive, which is the same as flash storage.

    You can make as many VM's as you want, provided you have the necessary (external) disk space for them. You will need to confirm with your VM app that all these factors will work together regarding your Mac model and year, and the versions of winOS you will be using.

    Boot Camp will only be useable with an internal drive.

    Hi Ferrarr

    I understand you; I have concern for two points:

    1) Bootcamp can use only by internal even by flash memory will not work properly
    2) Ok just share with me the steps to install Windows on external HD by using Virtual Box; Can also the software install on External
    or software will be on internal laptop HD and OS will be on external


    Thanks in advance
