Hey Anthon,

I do not believe that you can install Microsoft Windows from a thunderbolt connection. However, I do believe that you can easily install Mac OSX on one of those drives and boot or run your Mac from there. I don not think it would allow you to boot Windows from there, but you could still install your Windows programs on a partition on that drive and access them when booted from the internal drive.

*Hope this helps*
