Thanks. I do have Ubuntu installed on an external drive. Do you think it can properly be run from and external hard drive?

They work best from CD.
I am/was out of them at the moment.
Well, one thing I suppose quite a few people will be happy about:

*** Enhancements in v4.10 : ***
  • New Features
    • Added support for Core i7 Extreme CPU (32nm)
    • Added support for Core i5/i3 (32 nm)
    • Added support for Pentium Gxxxx (32 mn)
    • Added support for Westmere-based Xeon
    • Added preliminary support for Intel Sandy Bridge
    • Added support for AMD 6-cores CPU
    • Added detection for Intel 3200/3210
    • New installer for USB Key
That's in the change log for MemTest86+; the last item in the list will save a few people from headaches... And possibly cause a few more headaches for those of us that can't boot from USB. Lol. I can, but only if my drive access is set to SATA mode, it doesn't seem to work if I have it in RAID or AHCI.



Anyway, I'm going way off topic here... Somebody post a screenshot! Quickly! One with mind blowing figures to steer the conversation back on track!!

Only way to find out is to try it.. never installed Ubuntu on an external drive, but I don't see how it wouldn't

Numbers are nice, but what about the "feel"?

A Guy, It feels like slipping into bed on fresh satin sheets after you've dried from a great shower! Add companionship of your choice.
