How to make HD bootable?
So I am installing Puppy on an old Compaq M300 laptop, which has no CD or floppy.
So I took out the hard drive, put it into a USB enclosure and installed Puppy from my desktop.
When I put the HD back into the laptop, it wont boot. Puppy offers to create a boot floppy, but I cant use that option. Is there a way to set the hard drive to boot itself?
(I am newbie to Linux so bear with me)
Would it make a difference if I unplugged my desktop HD, which would make the USB/laptop HD to be an "a" partition?
