    Windows to go on sd card


    Ok I have a church friend who is 150 years old using a win 7 dell laptop which I have
    on occasion had to repair for her (main uses email and skype video).
    This was from the ms sticker a win 8 computer downgraded to win 7.
    She declined my offer to upgrade (as she says "I'll probably dead tomorrow, no sense in it")
    So I was thinking of "windows to go" on a sd card (the computer is capable of booting off it).
    that way she could experience win 10 without installing it.

    anyone have thoughts on this?
    I have a 200 gig micro sd it install it on.

    She would probably die before it booted and loaded her email.

    As stated, Windows on an SD card, Or USB drive will run way slower then if it is on an internal HDD/SSD. Since she doesn't care or want it, why do it?

    And after taking several minutes to load, I doubt she would be impressed.

    Make sure that she has the KB4493132 update installed - maybe she'll change her mind when she gets fed up with the persistent nagging
