All methods mentioned above should work with any version of Windows 10 really.WintoUSB program will install without enterprise iso.
I wonder if there's a way to make a removable USB (of the non-fixed drive type) WTG using a single NTFS partition that's UEFI bootable.
Also I find it rather annoying that it's often very hard to know beforehand if a USB pen drive is tagged as being removable or as fixed drive.
For instance, my Mushkin Ventura Ultra is tagged as a fixed drive but what about their Impact series ? Same thing for other manufacurers etc.
Or is it safe to assume that all the fast ones are tagged as fixed drives ?
to make WINTOGO really useful it might be better to create it from a VM.
Some VM systems (for example VMWARE) can create a UEFI VM that actually doesn't need the HOST to be equipped with UEFI. You still create a UEFI WINTOGO UEFI system this way even on a NON UEFI system. The VM BIOS still takes care of the UEFI stuff.
I've usually found though it's better for a genuinely universable WINTOGO system to create one for a NON UEFI system --it willl still boot of course on UEFI systems so long as you have Legacy boot enabled.
Secure boot is another issue entirely and IMO it's really a DOG -- don't use if at all possible,
That's fast enough in my book (the Mushkins are faster still) but the fact that it isn't tagged as fixed limits its use. Well to me at least. (Single partition. NTFS only for large files and so on)Depends on your definition of fast I guess. My 64 gig Kingston USB 3 Hyper X drive isn't tagged as fixed.
To give you an idea, the Mushkin Ventura Ultra produces higher transfer rates (USB 3.1) whilst backing up (Macrium) than internal transfer rates using two Mushkin Cronos SSD backing up one onto the other.. Of course, I realize that I am limited here by the chipset on my MB.
Haven't really benchmarked that USB stick but merely subjectively it really feels fast.
Going by the speed of the HyperX there's really no way of knowing how it's tagged unless the manufacturer specs it, correct ?
@jimbo: Yeah, I know what you mean but having to enter the BIOS and changing entries on my own machine each time I want to use my WTG is not my cup of tea.
My WTG is working great (on my machine) without me having to change anything in bios (its full UEFI, secure boot enabled). I really don't need it to be universally compatible, I just made it to learn stuff.
