Right now I have a very capable gaming PC and a laptop I use for work. I have a second job that I want to do after hours while staying in the office during my first job (I read technical papers while working the second job). So I realized it would be quite risky to ask my IT support to install software needed to work my second job, on my 1st job's work laptop (provided by my company). Instead of buying a new laptop entirely just for the second job that I have to take to work every day, is there any way I can boot a separate OS from an external harddrive using my work laptop and not get caught doing it? This would save me a lot of money, and the headache of having to use a second laptop.
