Can I access drive on host system while booting from usb stick?
I've Googled this six ways from Sunday, with no luck.
Can I access the hard drive on my laptop while booting from a USB stick with a live Linux distro on it?
It seems to me it might be possible: otherwise how could a bootable stick be used to repair a damaged host filesystem?
My host system is OK; I don't need to repair anything. I just want to be able to read/write/edit files on the host HD while booting from USB...
Host: a Dell Inspiron 64-bit dual-core laptop dual booting Fedora 17/Win 7.
USB Linux distro: Any.
TIA for any help.
Thank you -- problem solved!
Wow! I had no idea I'd get such a quick and helpful reply. I've been struggling with this on and off for a *long* time (months). Thank you very much.
