comment Can't write to external hard drive
Possible permissions problem. Try sudo touch path/to/mount/point/mynewfile and see it it works. If so its ownership. Who do you want to have access to the drive?

Sorry, I missed that. At 26 bytes there is nothing other than "in underwear and a shirt?" in the file so nothing to worry about there. What about owner and group info?

comment How to partition SSD+HDD?
you stated "You will want to copy /home and it's contents to a temporary location and copy it back after your done with the install." It's always possible to tell the installer to use the existing /home directory for the new installation's /home, but be sure not to format it. This removes the need to do anything with it after the install.
