Got another tricky one for ya.

 

I have an iMac 21,5" late 2012 with thunderbolt.

 

I want to install Windows 7 Professional Bootcamp on an External Thunderbolt SSD (Basic partition).

 

I tried using this guide http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7-to-usb-external-hard-drive-must-read/

 

But didnt work, probably because it's not for Mac users + not Thunderbolt.

 

Anyone got any ideas?

 

Thank you for reply!

 

Best Regards

Jonas

I'm giving up, describing the compatibility between Mac/Windows/External Harddrives = USA/Russia/China, try to solve that.

I'm buying a PC, can anyone recommend me hardware and components for a PC designed for Video Editing + gaming?

How good are you at custom builds? You could get out cheaper and also get experience.

Also where are you looking at buying one? IbuyPower, Cyberpower, Newegg?

I can build a computer, I know where things fit and dont fit, and to follow the manuals of motherboards etc, THAT SAID, it was 10 years ago since I had my fingers on computer hardware, so I have missed a lot. Second, I live in Dubai, and I cant seem to find any store etc that sells, so I have to order (which most does anyway). Hehe, Im just completely frustrated that Ive spent 10 days trying to solve a problem, spending 1100 dollars, on something that is doomed to fail if you are not bill gates and Steve jobs in the same body.

 

Anyway, thanks for all your help guys.

 

Wish me luck
