So background story is this. I had an old computer that died but the hard drives were still good. On that hard drive was a version of windows that wouldn't boot up correctly and it would just restart my pc. So now I have built a computer and want to use the same hard drives but I'm going to reformat them completely and start over with linux because it is free. Since I also have a laptop I bought a sleeve thing so I could use my old internal hard drive as an external. Is there a way where I could install linux onto the external hard drive then put it in the new computer so I don't have to burn it on any discs?
