So my main laptop is a MacBook which runs on a Samsung 850 evo ssd, has 2 partitions- one runs El Capitan and other is formatted as exfat.
My questions is - how can I use this very ssd to run Windows 10 on my other (HP) laptop off the exfat partition?
Situation as of now - I have a bootable usb of Windows 10 but it asks for a cd disk, and I can't seem to find a way to use the usb.
What I fear is that by using a recovery cd to install Windows, the program might overwrite over all my existing data. What I want is to just install Windows on the exfat partition
I understand that unlike Mac, Windows has to be installed separately for each and every computer, I can't use some other laptops ssd to boot this laptop.
Any help or comments are appreciated. Thank you!
Edit: Im gonna use the ssd as an internal ssd on the HP laptop, not as an external with an enclosure. Its my fathers old work laptop and i have standing instructions to not to edit anything on it (but the damn thing is running windows 7), since there will come a day when he'll have to return it. This is why i wanna 'preserve' the partition with el capitan. I will not be connecting-disconnecting it again and again. Jist twice. I have since formatted the partition in NTFS.
**so my ultimate question is this : I have a drive with two partitions, I want to install windows 10 on just one while the other partition remains untouched. Since its too messy to install windows on 1 device and then port it to other, I have inserted the ssd in the new laptop. How do I move forward with the installation? **
