Tablet [Q] Installing Android to an external memory

Hi All!

My Navon Platinum 7 tablet has a serious issue: it lost its internal memory. With power+Vol. down button I can enter the recovery mode, but the device only sees its external memory (inserted SD card), the internal memory is totally lost (no drive letter or something). I think its not worth any hardware repairing, so i decided to install a new android to its external card, and boot from it.

The question is: How can I install an Android system to an external card, and set the boot priority to boot from external drive (microSD)? Which distribution can I install on this device? (Tried to find a rom, that supports Navon but i couldn't find anything.)

I hope you can help me

Thank you!

This is for multi boot for mtk but you can use the similar method on your device
