I'm planning to install newest AV Linux on external drive (SSD, connected via USB 3.0 port).
It would mainly be used on my Lenovo Ideapad Gaming 3 laptop.
I'm also using that same laptop for work related stuff, so Windows 10 Pro instalation should not be messed up in any way.
The plan is to set up BIOS to look for external drive first while booting, so, i'm thinking on instaling AV Linux's bootloader on external drive.
The idea is, if the external drive is connected, AV Linux would be booted, and if it's not, laptop simply continues booting windows.
So, the question is - is this a good idea?
Can AV Linux's bootloader be installed on external drive (i don't konw which one is it at the moment - GRUB maybe?)
What should i be aware of?
What about windows defender, antivirus or similar software - i mean, if i boot up Windows, and use that external drive as a data storage, would windows mess anything up in my Linux installation ?
Would there be noticable latency while recording/monitoring due to additional (USB 3.0) connection to SSD?
What about using that same external drive later on another computer (booting with different hardware)?
