Yes I am trying to install Ubuntu to a USB external hard drive. I partition the drive and I put down install grub to the external hard drive so I did change this but for some reason it keeps installing grub to the internal drive. I'm trying to do this with 16.10 and I'm getting a little frustrated. I've tried to install it like three or four times and I keep telling it to install grub to the external drive but for whatever reason it wont do it. Can Ubuntu not be installed to a USB external drive?
This is an external hard drive not a small USB pin drive. Just to make this clear.
