    Windows Enterprise just means that it has more features available, because it is for a domain. It does not change the performance. If you are playing games, you really need a good fast SATA III SSD or even a fast Platter drive/Hybrid drive for that machine. I would also be using a RAID 10 instead of RAID 1 if you have more than one drive. Installed. Using the Windows Portable to go is not meant for doing much on it, such as gaming.

    My understanding of Windows To Go, the official one. Is its so employees of a company can take their company install (desktop) home in their pocket. Plug it into their Home PC and have access to their work Apps and programs, even the company network. Everything done is saved to the thumb drive or the company server. Work from home. My official WTG hides my PC's internal drives, you don't see them. That's so nothing gets altered (screwed up) on the downer PC. Nothing gets saved there either. Windows To Go is Enterprise because its for Enterprise customers. Activation likely factors into it too, it would be using a VL key and count as 1 of the licenses allowed to the company under their VL agreement. In my case its activated with a MAK key because that's what Microsoft gives me with my Visual Studio subscription. They don't ever give me VL keys. I also want to see in my WTG gets a Digital License. In theory I don't think it should. But my normal Enterprise installs with my MAK key all got DL's. I tried to find out if that was by design or a glitch but didn't get anywhere.

    That's what I was thinking. My attempts at rolling my own Pro WTG all failed for one reason or another. So I've only ever run the official setup. I have a nice fast Kingston Hyper X 64 gig thumb drive, but its not a certified drive. The WTG Utility won't use it. Anyway, not going to go into what I tried etc. That's for another thread. Just didn't work out for me on that thumb drive.

    wintousb (not wtg) works on any flash drive with enough capacity and can even do uefi installs now.
