Hello. I have Vista on my system, and I want to install suse on my usb harddrive, leaving my internal hard drive untouched. I made an install dvd and have gone through the install steps, except for the part which says to start writing.
In the the portable suse article,
It states the following:
Follow the setup wizard to the configuration of GRUB
Proceed to Installation Settings
Select Expert mode in the Boot Loader Installation tab of Boot Loader Settings dialog
Select Boot from Root Partition for the Boot Loader Location option.
After the installation, SuSE will reboot automatically. Directly booting, even from the BIOS “USB Boot” will probably fail, so boot from the installation DVD again.
Proceed to Installation Mode and select Boot Installed System from Other Options, to complete the installation.
Okay, when I go through the installer on the dvd, I go to the “boot loder installation” tab, and I see the following selected:
Boot loader: Grub
Boot loader locations:
] Boot from boot partition
] Boot from extended partition
] boot from master boot record
] boot from root partition
] custom boot partition
Do I just check “boot from root partition” and keep all others unchecked? Do I need to mess around with custom boot partition? I root partition and custom boot partition are both checked.
In a previous step I believe I have selected default settings for my partitions.
