Hi I currently have kubuntu 11.04 on my laptop harddrive that is in an external enclosure. i.e. it is on the outside of the machine and connect to the computer via USB.
It works fine on my windows machine and I love the fact I could also plug it into my kubuntu machine at home and use it as a regular harddrive too.
Although my new job basically wants me to use a mac. Apparently you need something called an efi support on my grub so here are the questions:
- Does kubuntu 11.04 have efi support on its grub i.e. can I plug my hard drive with my kubuntu on via USB to a mac and boot from there? If not how could I get one?
- Also does getting efi support make any difference when I plug it into my kubuntu machine at home? So can I back up my data as I used to?(by simply plugging it in)
- Could I still plug it into my windows machine as before and work if I get efi support?
All help is welcome and thanks in advance
p.s. If you have trouble with heavy laptops give external harddrives a go its like carrying an ultra light linux machine (with all your data in it)!
