Hello,
I am new to the forum and I remember years ago I was able to Install LINUX on an external HDD an run it from there. Is that still possible?
Thanks,
JT

Yes it's possible. Just be sure you install the boot loader to the external drive and not the internal one. The reason being is that you may not be able to boot up to the internal drive without the external being connected if the internal drive points to Grub on the external for boot info.
