    Default Backtrack 3 final on external hard drive FULL INSTALL without changes.lzm

    Is it possible to have a fully usable backtrack 3 on an external hard drive as it would be on my internal HD. I don't want it to be a live version as i cannot stand them! I've been trying to use my USB stick as a full version of BT but so-far no luck and i wonder if this will be different for external HDD.

    Thanks

    Yes it is possible! I have it on my internal HD and you would just have to make sure to set the correct location on your internal boot loader to load the OS from your external

    Like if your using grub it would be

    hd1,0
    instead of hd0,X

    And you can install it just as you would from the command prompt for BT2

    You can, check out this link:

    You'll need about 4GB of space for the installation. It isn't a live install, so all changes are saved, and the system isn't compress in lzm files.
