4)I already have an OS installed on one hard drive, if I get access to it (the second) will there be a problem with which OS loads?

if you have enough memory you can do that

for example;
1. boot to grub
2. add kernel parameter "break=postmount", and boot
3. once at the shell, copy the rootfs files or squashfs image into a ramdisk
4. unmount /newroot and mount the copied rootfs into /newroot
5. exit the shell to continue booting
6. the system is now running entirely from ram, and you are free to format and install onto the usb drive

So I'm trying to do some homework for my introduction to programming class, the assignment asks for a program that loops until the right password is enter. It's written in Python and this is what I've got:
password = input("What is the password?")

while password != "abc123":
print("This is not the password.")
password = input("What is the password?")
print("You entered the correct password.")

I tested it multiple times and it works, but the site where we submit the homework tells me it's wrong. What the fuck am I doing wrong? Forgive me if I fuck up the formatting, I've not used code tags before. If I need to I can take it to /dpt/

have you played music on a laptop before?
sell it and buy a bigger one.

note that it has an IPS screen since you wanted good colors, and they're more expensive than regular ones.
you have to increase your budget if you want a good display and large storage.
or just get a laptop with regular LED screen.

I've had to restart so many times this past week, I want a real fix instead of a bandaid.
If i had to make an uneducated guess i'd say that either the CPU or GPU is throttling under certain conditions but I don't know what to do or how to monitor this. Any help or links to resources that can would be greatly appreciated.
