Cloned Centos 6.8 on old COMPAQ Using dd to portable SSD but does not show up as bootable drive on DELL laptop
My first post, and I am not sure if what I am attempting is possible, so sorry if I sound like a moron.
I would like to be able to boot to Linux residing on a portable SSD from my new Dell laptop running windows 10. Here's how I'm trying to accomplish this:
I have CentOS 6.8 loaded on an old COMPAQ AMD 64 PC. I created a clone of the CentOS 6.8 system using dd onto a portable SSD (SSD is about 20G bigger than the hard drive running the Linux system). I was able to successfully boot to the cloned CentOS system residing on the portable SSD from the old COMPAQ PC (the same one I created the clone from). However, when I tried to boot to the portable SSD from the laptop, only the internal disk shows up on the boot menu. What am I missing?
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give. I may have to do this a different way.
