  1. No. Windows needs to be installed while the drive lives in the system it will be running in.

    I'd give it about a 98-2 against it actually booting up.
  2. I'd make it 99-1, especially when the target is a Mac. Why not just use Boot Camp to install it directly on the Mac?

    Cause it's an early 2011 model and I can't boot camp with a USB :c

    I've tried everything but I found out that the firmware doesn't support booting from USB even after editting some file I can't remember the name of
    But yea unless I'm over looking something I don't think it'll work
  5. Fair enough. I take it your optical drive is broken?
