Reddit: Using a USB stick for all my Linux files.

Wednesday 15th of June 2016 02:11:22 PM

Hello I currently have a Mac running OSX 10.11.4 and I was wondering if it was possible for me to have Linux 16.04 on my 128GB USB stick,What I am referring to is having all the Linux files on the USB and having all my Linux files on the USB without creating a partition on my Mac hardrive, so that way when I have it plugged into my Mac I can boot into it with no issues to my Mac SSD? I have tried to use parallels but it doesn't work for what I am looking for to do.
