I have been trying to install ubuntu onto my external hard drive for the past few days now and I cannot get it to work correctly. I have followed several guides to try and do this and they usually wind up being confusing or do not work. I have formatted my hard drive correctly, I made a USB stick that boots into Ubuntu and allows me to install. I believe it is installed correctly but when it comes to booting into my new install is where I am having problems. I have tried to use refind to do this but the instructions of making it boot ubuntu are not clear. If there is anyone who has done this in the past please provide a very detailed guide. I would like to do this soon. Thank you for your ttime.
