I tried to install 6.2 amd64 on external usb hdd, but with no result.
It is 2.5 WD and enclosure with two usb connectors for power. The box
is not visible from bios at all, even when I use powered usb hub. Is
it possible to install on external device like this? Product is from
canyon. Should I buy another enclosure or look for internal 3.5 drive?
Note: neither bios nor installation cd see the external drive. What
could I do to have it working?
IIRC, you can only install to drives that the bios can see. You could
try finding a computer whose bios can see the drive and installing
from there. As long as you don't touch the internal drives on that
machine, everything *should* be safe. YMMV
