I want to try Parrot on my laptop without touching my current windows installation or the boot sections whatsoever. Still need more time to backup/plan and wipe it for the full move.
I have an extra 2.5 SATA SSD with a USB3 adapter i would like to setup Parron on. Boot from this drive, and make any changes persistent, i dont want to just boot to a live version and lose all changes on every boot.
Is this possible? will the performance or stability be hugely affected?
Any tips or link to a tutorial much appreciated.
Ok i flashed parrot on the external SSD and i am able to boot from it to the Parrot desktop. I see there is a “persistent” option in the boot menu, but so far changes are not saved after rebooting.
Im on windows and see a 3+ gb partition on it and the rest of the drive unallocated. So should i just format that in linux and save the changes there?
