Installing to USB HDD
 
Hey,

I'm new to puppy and have been running it from a USB flash drive. I recently brought a USB HDD (120gb) though and wanted to install puppy to that. I tried from within the live CD using thing universal installer but i still can't boot from the hdd.

Also i'm having troubles connecting to the internet via an ethernet conncection through on the motherboard.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks :D

Check first your BIOS! You must have "USB-HDD" bios support.

Lol. My bios isn't the problem cause i can set the boot priority to the external hdd.

*EDIT* After a few hours of persiverence i've managed to get puppy booting from my external hdd. Though i'm still having trouble accessing he internet from puppy. Any help would be much appreciated *EDIT*
