For the Air and the Retina I doubt there's enough room for an additional drive; however, you do not need additional drives to dual-boot, you just need to partition a single drive with Boot Camp. (that's how my rMBP is set up right now)

thanks for reply ..

i know dual-boot and partition. so there is no space to put second SSD.

Can i run windows thru Flash Drive while running Apple OS? instead of doing dual-boot / vmaware and all .. directly from Flash can i run Windows OS ? if yes please give me some direction ..

thanks in advance ..

It would NOT be recommended to run any operating system from a flash drive... performance would be absolutely abysmal. It's possible, but generally only done for installing the OS. For general use it is impractical.

Running it from a USB 3 drive, on the other hand, isn't too terrible. I still wouldn't use that for daily use, though.
