I am going to try this on the old Dell laptop I have.  Why?   Because I can.  :smilewink:

Most of my posting is done from a Samsung Chromebook.  Great little device that is supposed to be better protected from malware than a PC.

Looks interesting.  Let us know how it goes.  I've got a laptop I need to replace the Hdd in and this might be something to do with it.  I also have a very, very old laptop that I could play with.

The Dell Dimension M1330 that I was running Ubuntu for a while needs a new drive and this will be part of the upgrade.  I hope to have an update before the end of the week... or whenever I get to it.
