I've created the 14.04 installer DVD, and would like to use it to install the release onto a flash drive. If that works, would also like to install it onto an external hard drive. In both cases, I DON'T want to create a dual boot with the Windows 8.1 on my internal drive.
If I can install them, plan to boot them from the PC boot menu. I don't want to modify my internal drive, don't want GRUB on it.
MY PC is a Lenovo 64 bit laptop with UEFI, but hope I've surmounted the UEFI problem by changing to Legacy mode on the BIOS Menu.
