I just got a Raspberry pi 3 with a WD usb external pi hardrive. The hardrive comes with a bootberry sd card with really confusing and contradictory instructions that installed (old outdated versions of everything) but was a pain to setup. I think I just bricked the OSes I had on it by changing the names* in the bootberry window, or something, anyways two out of the three will no longer boot.
I have way more experience with noobs, and have never been disappointed. Can noobs work with external hardrives? How would I do that? I want rasbian, some elec, and some emulator OS. I would like rasbian, elec, and the emulator OS to be able to share files if at all possible.
*The list of OSes had their version number, since the updates were extensive I though their were probably outdated, so clicked rename to just rename them to their base name, sans version number. You think their would be some warning that I was changing not only the menu designation, but key features of the OSes that they depended on.
