I want to install Ubuntu onto a USB drive and boot into an actual installation of Ubuntu using my MacBook Air, but I'm not sure if this is possible. To clarify, I don't want to install a live version of Ubuntu, with or without persistent storage. I want to use the USB drive as if it were a drive attached to the computer, and I were booting into another fully-installed OS, with the USB drive functioning as the hard drive for that OS. I have read some things about installing Ubuntu on a Mac, and some things about installing a live version on a USB drive (with or without persistent storage), none of these things are exactly what I want to do. -- And, in fact, I did already try installing a live version on a USB drive, but it didn't work properly for some reason. It would boot into Ubuntu and run, but then the graphics would start to get all messed up (I had some issues with things being entirely blacked-out, and one time, the whole screen just went black and stayed that way). I'm not sure if what I want to do is possible, but if it is, or if there are any other ideas anyone has, I'd really appreciate it! I miss Ubuntu so much, and really want to be able to actually use it again. <3
Thank you for any help you can provide!
