    You can but it would be really slow if you are not using a SSD. You can setup a Portable Drive install with Windows To Go. Download Creating a Portable Windows 10 Environment with Windows To Go from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Reputable members here would not recommend software that is not safe. @cereberus is a reputable member here. Aomei partition assistant is fine to us as well.

    Yes, the Official Windows To Go Utility will only let you create an Enterprise Windows To Go drive. And it will only let you use Certified Windows To Go thumb drives. It will let you use just about any external hard drive you want though. I used an old laptop drive in a USB enclosure and it was painfully slow. YMMV

    i think your problem with Enterprise windows, its very heavy on normal computer

    any way i used WinToUSB software + windows 10 home on my 2 TP external hard drive (USB 3) and the computer work fast without any problems

    My slow speed was due to it being a 5400 RPM IDE laptop drive in a USB 2 enclosure. I used an Enterprise Windows To Go because I can legally do it. Plus that's the only install the Official WTG utility will let you make. It won't let you use any thing other than an Enterprise ISO to create the drive. I have a Visual Studio Subscription (formally MSDN) so I have legal keys to run Enterprise. Keep in mind that your Windows To Go install requires a license to use it. And that it "may" fail to stay activated if you use it on too many different PC's. Your setup isn't an official setup. Just a heads up. I will be doing up another WTG install after the fall update drops. This time though I'll use an SSD in a USB 3 enclosure.

    Good luck buddy

    I will add my win cd key after trying the hard drive for 10 days to check if everything work fine
