I think I'm almost there just being cautious. External is 200MB active as drive E. I'm up to ready to start, however --.
Partition to install to "E", Letter of Active is "E", installing to USB "Yes"
But it says "OS will assign itself drive C", and asks if I want to assign a different letter. ENTER YOUR CHOICE FOR OS DRIVE LETTER: . I guess I enter "C" ??
And you are saying it's going to mess with laptops boot files and have a menu every time I boot up? That's not OK on this laptop. I was under the opinion that when done with this, that I would select F12 at boot up to manually select the USB drive to boot off of. Thanks!
