Linux on a portable hard drive?


Recommended Posts

Might not work if you move it between systems though. Or is it only windows that is tied to the hardware its installed on?

Ye, that's windows. Well, stuff like xorg configurations probably won't work, but the system will actually boot, unlike windows which will just give up and die with a blue screen.

In order for you to be able to boot off of the external drive, you must make sure that your motherboard supports booting from a USB/Firewire device. In addition you must make sure that the external device is loaded before the internal disk by the motherboard, otherwise, Windows will boot anyway.
