Wasn't sure which category this problem might fit best, so I settled on posting it here. I was wondering if it were possible for me to boot up the Ubuntu OS from my now external hard drive?
You see, a few weeks ago my laptop decided to no longer work. (It turns on, but doesn't seem to actually do anything.) And because we couldn't figure out the problem, we decided to take out my hard drive, and make it external temporarily. Initially, there wasn't any pressing need for me to attempt to access it until now.
Thing is though, I've never had to do this sort of thing before. And therefore have virtually no idea what I'm doing.
If it's at all relevant, the computer that I currently borrow uses Windows 8. And my hard drive has two partitions on it. Ubuntu 12.04, and Windows 7.
I would love to get back to using Ubuntu again, so help would be very much appreciated! ^^
