    Installing another OS on external drive on a PC encrypted with Endpoint Encryption

      Hi Dear,

       

      the company where I work assigned me a brand new laptop encrypted with McAfee Endpoint Encryption. Being a PC I should use only for work I don't want to install any personal software on it.

       

      But being very often on business trips I cannot travel with two laptops (personal + business)...

       

      I was wondering whether is it possible to install another XP (no need to be encrypted) on a USB ext drive and let the PC boot from ext when I need my personal stuff. I see that the Bios allows to boot from external drives.

       

      Does it in any way harm the integrity on the main hard disk? Does it create conflicts to Mcafee encryption? I don't want to have troubles with my company.

       

      Thanks a lot!

      Max
