Re: Security on travel computer

My setup is a bit more on the paranoid side, but when crossing many borders it is better to be safe than sorry, as some say. I travel with MX on an external HDD which I plug in and boot when necessary. MX is installed in a LUKS encrypted partition, say 50GB. Then on the same disk there is another en...

Re: Not booting on External HDD

Guys, thanks you all for your support and troubleshooting help. However I have decided to give up on this. No worth the hassle as this is going to be a system seldom used.

Re: Not booting on External HDD

I can boot this disk successfully on 3 different computers but it does not boot on my Dell E7450. The dell bios is set on Legacy and Secur...
