I had a laptop that ceased to turn on one day due to (what I presume to be) a hardware malfunction. I successfully managed to extract the hard drive from that laptop and place it in an USB adapter. I can now navigate the hard drive’s content from any new computer. I want to install Debian on that now external hard drive and boot from it on another laptop. Would that be possible? If «yes», how?
There are instruction for installing to and booting from an external USB drive, but I don't know, if these same instructions are applicable to an external HDD.
