    Script for Ubuntu Studio (latest version) to external drive with GRUB

    I have Windows 8, and was wondering if there's a utility that I could use somewhere online to help me create a script that will allow me to run Ubuntu Studio from my external drive. I have no idea of where GRUB should go, so if anyone has any ideas, I'd really appreciate it.

    I found something at this link that might help me http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=67934

    Most computers let you configure the BIOS if you're holding the Del key when it starts up. Some let you select a boot drive if you're holding F11 or some other special key.

    I am actually going to give you the current setup of my BIOS and from there, someone can help me make the required changes to my BIOS before I attempt installation. It will take some time.

    Almost finished writing down my current computer's BIOS configuration. I should be finished writing it all down sometime today.

    Just the name of the BIOS should be sufficient.

    OK, it is "Lenovo BIOS Setup Utility". I have a Lenovo H430.

    Right. The manual for your computer states:

    How can I start the BIOS setup utility?

    To start the BIOS setup utility:
    1.
    Shut down the computer.
    2.
    Repeatedly press and release the F1 key after turning on the computer, then

    select
    Startup



    Boot Priority


    Aside from that, I guess you'll need to look at what you can do there.

    I will go into my BIOS later, and I do believe that there are other settings I have to change. I will report the settings that might need to be changed and see what needs to be done.

    I figured I'd give you the current settings of my PC's BIOS & their options, because I realize parts of the BIOS have to be changed before I can run the installation. I just want to make sure everything is right before I do anything else. I don't want to go through trial & error here.
