I have a 512 Gb M1 air mac and i wanted to be able to use linux (asahi) since it’s necessary for my University.
However I don’t want to use internal space and i tought that i could maybe use an external SSD dedicated to just asahi, so when the SSD is plugged in I get the option to select which OS to use, and when it’s unplugged it automatically boot into MacOS.
Mac M1 requires a full thunderbolt 3 connection on your external drive such as OWC’s Envoy Express series. However, I have only confirmed this while booting to macOS externally and have not tried any Linux distros. Hope this helps.
