  1. Hi, My goal is to have an external HDD which i can plug into the mac and boot windows 7 from, I have cloned (using winclone) my current bootcamp partition and restored it to a partition on the new external drive (the purpose of this is to save space by deleting the internal drive partition). However, when I choose to boot the windows partition from the rEFIt boot screen I get the darwin chimera bootloader in windows that only allows me to choose from the Macintosh HD and the Bootcamp partition on the internal drive could somebody help to rectify this or give me another way to achieve this. thank you
