Machines that shipped with a DVD drive can't install Windows using a usb device in my experience.

But you can ...

The answer is YES. My mid 2007 iMac is currently configured in such a fashion. My Windows 8.1 uses a BIOS boot. I have two NTFS partitions, one exFAT partition and two HFS+ partitions.
