    Windows 10.

    Can you start a PC from a Windows 10 USB hard drive as in Macs?

    Can you start a PC or laptop from a Windows 10 USB hard drive as in Macs?

    I know how how to start a mac off an external hard drive with a bootable OS X volume. I wonder if you can do the same with PCs and Windows 10.

    Windows 10 Home x64 (Laptop), Windows 10 Pro x64 (Desktop)

    This may help but I think you need a product key - Windows 10 - Setup and Run on USB Flash Drive
