Okay so a while back I broke my screen on my laptop, so I cannot access the BIOS because I cannot see it. I have a few external hard drives that I keep connected to my laptop always, but when I reboot I have to unplug them so my laptop doesn't try to boot them. I was wondering if there was a file that I could put at the root of the drives that I don't want booted so the BIOS just skips over them. Is this possible?
You can do this by making the partitions inactive, so they can be accessed but can't be boot.
