So I just purchased myself a flashy new Western Digital 1TB External Hard Drive! My main goal was to remove everything I needed from an old computer before I passed it on. That part is done. Now, I have another question.
I had a friend many years ago talk about wanting to make it so he could plug in a flash drive to anyone else's computer and it would boot using his OS and files. Pretty much just using someone else's hardware to run his system. I think I would like to do this with my hard drive.
My purpose for doing this is that I travel a bit but do not have a laptop. I would need this mainly for when I'm at relatives' houses and I'm bored so I can run my Steam Client, Steam games, and a specialty RPG Character Builder. Would this idea work? Would it be worth the effort? If the answer is yes to both of these then how would I go about doing it?
Side Note: The RPG Character Builder is called Hero Lab. This program presents a separate challenge in itself. Because of the way the company has it set up I can only authorize my account to two computers. Would using this External Hard Drive allow me to use it with any Laptop/Desktop?
