Is it possible to install Windows 7 on an external hard drive and use on my Mac? I really want to play some PC games on my Mac but would rather not partition my hard drive for Windows. I mean, if it comes to that I wouldn't have a big problem with it. Also, how is the compatibility on using PC game discs in Windows on the Mac? Will Windows recognize the Mac Super Drive? Really, I just want to have Windows on my Mac so I can install Lord of the Rings Online and play and I already have the discs (my PC is KIA). Thanks for any responses.

20-inch iMac (2.4 GHz), 250 GB HDD, 2GB DDR RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.6)

    No. Windows does not support the installation of itself on external drives.

    how is the compatibility on using PC game discs in Windows on the Mac?


    No issues. running Windows on a Mac is no different than running it on any other PC.

    will Windows recognize the Mac Super Drive?


    Yes
