Hi,

I am an engineering student who uses an apple MacBook pro retina with a 126GB hard drive and need windows software to run a few programs. Im aware that splitting the hard drive using bootcamp is an option however my hard drive isn't the biggest and already have things on here so do not want to split it and ruin the performance of the mac side of things and have a not performing windows side.

Is there any way of using windows on my MacBook with an external hard drive or SD flash drive etc?

Thanks, Joe.

You could consider a virtual machine. Parallels costs money but seems simple to setup. VirtualBox is free but will need a little more work by you. You will also need to get a Windows license.
