Hi there !

Will puppy boot from a external HDD's FAT partition ? I have 4 partions in my external HDD.

Please comment,

If your BIOS supports booting from USB, it should. You can use the livecd and run the 'Install to USB' script. If your BIOS doesn't support booting from USB, I can't help you. I'm trying to figure that one out myself.

I booted an old HP Laptop with a Jump drive and a wakepup floppy.

The laptop didn't support USB booting, and it booted fine.

Win XP was hard crashed, puppy ran fine Very Happy

Search the wiki for wakepup.

I hope this helps.
