I want to dip my toes into the Ubuntu world. I have a 1TB drive in a NextStar external HD housing
Been reading a lot of different guides online for Dual-booting and I'm getting more and more confused :/
I want to skip/bypass all the dual boot installation problems by putting it on a secondary HDD that I can swap when the computer is shutdown.
My plan to keep my computer intact and still install Ubuntu.
1 - Have iso on bootable usbkey to install from (done)
2- Connect external HD
3- Go into bios on boot and set boot order to USB key then external USB drive (putting my Win 10 in last order)
4- Boot up to the install usb key
5- Go through install on external HD
6- Remove usb key and reboot into Ubuntu.
My questions :
Would this affect my WIN10 partition un the least?
I could simply plug in my external drive before booting to go into Ubuntu and remove it to go to windows?
What partitions would you reccomend on doing on the external HDD?
