I am trying to get Linux on an old XP PC. However, the CD is not working and I can't get the machine to boot from a USB stick.
Is there any way to install linux by pulling the HD and putting it in a USB enclosure? I saw some references but it looks like the process is complicated (Some type of bootloader).
I was thinking about pulling the HD and putting it in another machine to install linux, then putting it back into the original machine.
I'd appreciate any thoughts.
