    create a USB pen to boot into windows 10


    I understand there is an option to create a bootable USB pen to run windows 10 from, not talking about installing or repairing, but actually run windows 10 from a USB pen......can't remember what it's called, got a 16GB pen ready

    thanks

    Thanks Mark and I have been wanting to know if it is possible to DO THAT. I suspect most everything is possible, and we or someone, somewhere just needs to keep trying, and invent a way.

    SECURITY of my Windows 10 - is a big deal.

    This will be on my SHORT list of things to do.... So many things to do and new things to learn more about... With only two more months to work - I will have plenty to do now and learn more later. Don't ever forget that READING is fun.
    All be safe... Cliff M.

    I think you are referring to Windows To Go, but the last I checked, you need one of a few very specific flash drives that were quite pricey. You also will likely need more than 16 GB.

    I have a 64gb pen, apparently it's the read speed that's critical......

    Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education have an official Windows To Go utility in Control Panel. It will create a Windows To Go drive for you. It has to be a certified Windows To Go thumb drive or the utility won't use it though. My Kingston HyperX USB 3 64 GB thumb drive is rejected. I can however use an old slow IDE laptop drive in a USB enclosure.

    An unofficial build is till possible, link to tutorial in in the second post. Be advised that if you do this an use it on several different PC's, your likely going to have activation issues. The official Windows To Go utility creates an Enterprise Windows to Go drive.
