Boot Windows 7 x64 on a MacBook Pro from a USB harddisk

So the last weekend I got a new game. The problem is that it doesn’t run on Mac OS X… 🙁

Wine doesn’t handle it and Parallels is something to forget.

Then I remembered I have an Intel processor inside my laptop! Well… that’s great! So let’s install Windows on Boot Camp! 😀

The only problem is that my internal harddrive is already with 4 partitions: EFI, HFS+, Linux Swap and Ext4!…

My first thought was to clean up the trash I have on my HFS+ partition and resize it. However, 30 GB is barely enough for Windows and the game. Then I thought of installing Windows on an external drive. The problem is that it doesn’t support that…

Here’s what I did:

OSX crazy Terminal.app

First of all, I have to say I love my Mac. But if there’s something that drives me crazy, is the Terminal.app’s keybindings.

After being a Linux user for some years, the way Terminal.app works makes me get crazy. Here’s how to put everything working like it sould:

First of all, open ~/.profile in a text editor. Add the following line  to the beginning of the file:

TERM=linux

Then, get to the Terminal preferences menu->Settings->Keyboard. Change the following keys to those actions. Simply click on Edit->Action: Send String to shell.

Change the following:                                To:

home                                              33[1~

end                                                  33[4~

page up                                          33[5~

page down                                     33[6~

control cursor right                     33f

control cursor left                        33b

Now it all should work fine.

To make 33 appear, simply press ESC on the text area.

If you get to screw Terminal.app, simply delete the file ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.terminal.plist to reset the settings.
