Question About Linux Bootloader
I recently just filled up my hard drive and I am thinking of buying a new external hard drive. However, in the past I had a bad experience with the Linux boot loader because I wiped out Linux off my second internal hard drive then kept getting an error code when I tried booting to Windows regularly. It took me some time to realiza that all i had to do was format the MBR. So my question is if my booting will be affected if I put Linux on my new external hard drive that I might disconnect from time to time being that it is USB? Will I be able to boot to windows normally if my hard drive is not connected to the computer or will I get an error code from the boot loader?

You will be able to boot up into grub and then you must select windows to boot up.
