VBA modification: SSD + DVD removal
I purchased a 2TB VBA (based on MSI wind box) last fall. It is working very well. However, I am considering some modifications to it to care for future needs:
* Install VB sw to an ssd, while preserving /storage on the 2TB drive, or perhaps use an extra internal 2TB drive and let /storage expand to both drives.
* Remove the built-in DVD drive, and use its place for the new disk. I have not been using the DVD drive, and should there be a ripping need in the future I could use one connected to a USB port.
I guess (but I am not so HW skilled) that the box cannot expand with more disks (except for external USB)?
Then I remember seeing posts where people reported running VB from a USB memory. I also saw a wiki page describing how to install from a usb, but that article was referring to VB 1.5/1.6, so I was wondering if that procedure is still valid for VB 2.0 (I am still on 1.10, original factory installation). But I will now make a clean install to once and for all get rid of my customizations and start from square one.
So before running out to buy more disk, is this something that can be done?
