Some options include:

  • Disabling the HDDs in the bios.
  • Unplugging them.
  • Making a custom live cd that has the behavior you want.
  • Downloading an alternate live cd that has the behavior you want.
  • Seeing if the live cd has some startup options allowing you to configure it how you want.
  • computer is mine and live cd may be used by someone unauthorised.

  • @Garry. I see, then Notinlist's encryption is the right solution.
