Disk Utility, why can't you do that...
Authored by: syzygies on Apr 07, '06 11:00:06AM

For that matter, no one mentions above that Boot Camp insists on using the internal drive. Many of us boot our minis externally for speed; we're all waiting for the other shoe to drop on accessing the internal SATA connector, and using the mini as a mere component in a custom system.

So who's going to write the hint on tricking Boot Camp into using external partitions?

I'm happy to have Boot Camp play with its food, and diddle my internal drive, then trick it in a later step into instead using an external partition configured by Disk Utility. My internal drive is basically untouched, containing the shipped disk image and a few files that ended up there by accident. No backups needed!
