Can I run OSX off of an external hard drive emulating it in vmware?

Yep, its really easy to do. First install OS X natively on the USB drive using my guide:




Then after install don't try to reboot into OS X and boot into Windows. Open VMware and create a new virtual machine. Choose Custom instead of Typical and follow the Wizard and when you get to the hard disk part, set the VM to boot from a physical hard disk and choose your USB drive. Once the VM is created, boot it and OS X should load.
