Copying my existing Linux system to a USB HD

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to copy my operating system over to a USB hard drive (not a flash drive, but rather a hard drive) and then make it bootable on a laptop that has shown it can at least boot USB memory sticks and possibly also a USB hard drive.


From what I understand you need to use GRUB to make the drive bootable... how would you do that?

can you let us know the Linux system (and version number) you are using? Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora systems are all equipped with one-click Live USB drive creator..


i am willing to help if you provide this info,
