You are going to want to run a virtual machine with one of the aforementioned products (VirtualBox, VMware, etc.). You can still, technically, have the MS OS on the external drive, and there are (at least) two ways to do it:
What I want to do, is put a full MS operating system on my stand alone storage device. When I turn on the unit, it comes up on my desktop. I want to use that stand alone as my Microsoft system, inside my Linux OS, to gain access to areas on the web that I cannot access as a Linux machine.
I guess it would be like having a dual boot configuration, but not on the same drive.

Yes, and this will also avoid the bottleneck I've just mentioned above. As for the hackers, they will still have a harder time breaking into the OS.
I just thought of something else. I could buy another hard drive install it in my machine and put the MS operating system there. I fear the hackers will find me again with that idea though.

My OS on my desktop is Ubuntu. I made the change this past weekend as I was tired of not being able to secure my MS OpSys, which I previously used on this desktop. No matter what I did, the hackers got through everything I tried and hit me with a reformat attack.
