Back Track Esata

Recommended Posts

I have a nice new laptop running Windows, and I want to run BackTrack on it without messing with the partitions. So, I would like to install it to an external drive. Can I do this without messing up the Windows boot. I want to be able to boot Windows without having to have the external plugged in on boot.

Is there a simple way to do this? I guess I could temporarily remove the internal HDD for the install, but I don't want to if I don't have to.

Yes, the laptop supports booting from eSATA. I thought a regular install would make changes to the boot sector of the first HDD, or is that only if you are installing to a partition on your first HDD?

I think you will find this articles quite useful.
