Hi, I was attempting to install Xubuntu on my external HDD to make my Linux OS more portable. I successfully installed Xubuntu (32-bit) on my HDD with the desired ext4 filesystem and swap space and configured my BIOS (on my HP Pavilion dv6 series) to boot from usb HDD first. Despite all this it will not boot from the HDD and gets stuck with a blank screen, and will not continue. (I require the OS to work on my main HP.)
I tried to plug the HDD to my Toshiba machine and it booted fine.
Please note that my HP machine is a 64-bit system as opposed to my Toshiba machine. Can there be an issue with the BIOS on my HP machine that is causing this problem OR should I try installing a 64-bit version Xubuntu?
