    Here is dylunio's recommendation

    You can't have both devices /dev/sda1, if the external hard drive is /dev/sda1, then the usb will be /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sda. Other than that it looks fine.

    I think it woul be /dev/sdb1 because its right next to /dev/sda1 in that order also where should the external hardrive be mounted

    I got this from suseforums.net

    /dev/sda1 means "Serial Device A, partition 1".

    You'd be adding "/dev/sdb1", or "Serial Device B, partition 1", since your usb memory key is a seperate device from your external hard drive.

    This is my new reply from dylunio

    Use /dev/hdb

    Mount it werever you want, maybe as /mnt/usbkey

    you should have the external hard drive atached at the boot of linux, it is up to you if detach it in windows
