Thread: Boot External Drive

    Boot External Drive

    If I was to install debian on an external hard drive /dev/sda1, but use current /dev/hda mbr for grub and add the external drive to grub, will the ext. drive work during boot up? Or how can I get it to boot?

    The ext. drive is using usb port.

    Thnx.

    Sorry for late reply but you were right, adding the usb modules to initrd was the solution.

    Thnx.
