    What he said, the Micro SD card is essentially the Pi's hard drive. The current Pi only has 1 gig of RAM. click my "My Computer" link in my profile. You can set it up to run from RAM, the default setup doesn't do that though.

    For me, being able to boot from my laptops SD card slot would mean I could when needed boot from Linux to do Pi stuff, without having to mess with dual boot etc.

    I'd suggest looking into getting an old Thinkpad off eBay then. I pad €100 for a i5 with 8GB ram. Boots off SD fine.

    I just loaded the Raspbian x86 Desktop version on my spare desktop PC. I can get by with that.

    Speaking of x86 Systems, I posted a discussion a bit earlier regarding a low Processing port of Windows 10 Pro for some old laptops developed around 2004, and my quest to make it possible, (more "blast Processing" anyway) for someone to have such an old laptop and have it run as fast as a new one; Pre-Imaged Win 10 Request?
    I kinda want to know if anyone has tried to make a x86 type of this "lean" version of the OS, and if they can link me a copy of a pre-imaged version of the Lightest possible client made, for me. I promised an employer to work on some older devices to accomplish this, and for the most part I have. (At least, managed to accomplish to install the basic Windows 10 Pro x86 OS so far, anyway.) I just wish to push the boundaries here for this, you know?

    EDIT: Also, what are the chances I'm replying to the same guy in two different Discussion Posts?

    You are speaking to the same guy in two different threads. =)
    I have a "My Visual Studio" formally MSDN subscription and as of today I haven't seen any Lean edition. I was hoping it would be in the 1803 release but it wasn't. I haven't tried any of the unofficial release links. That's not normally something I do. @Kari is likely the one to talk to about custom install images.

    I should mention that the only reason I installed the Raspbian x86 Desktop version on my spare desktop PC is because there isn't any x64 version. Not released by the Pi foundation with that desktop. The PC in question could easily run an x64 version. All current versions of Raspbian for the Raspberry Pi are x86. Only the newest versions are x64 capable.

    Oh completely understandable. I will say though towards the end that had the Microsoft NT Software not been so cryptic to any developers outside of Microsoft's internal staff themselves, I would have just installed some sort of Mock Windows that like most Linux software, would have been light, non-resource intensive, and no doubt as fast processing as the average Linux Kernel can be sometimes. Upon which I must say, they may be more directly interpreted lines of code, but they certainly are incredibly weak in every other regard when it comes to real stress testing in my experience. (Not to forget the Basic lack of Microsoft NT .exe compatibility altogether.)

    My first real course on Windows was on Windows NT 4 workstation and NT 4 Server. Setup and getting the two working together. Wasn't really much use to me as that wasn't something I ever did. The PC's I had access to were locked down to prevent us from messing things up. I was so happy when Windows 2000 showed up. You could actually play games on that. It was one of my all time favourite Windows operating systems. It was solid for me.

    Aye. Unfortunately on my Part my direct involvement with the windows scene was until a bit later with developments of windows Vista and 7. A lot of what I was doing for that long gap of time was spent oddly away from computers, or as little to do with them in turn for traditionally spent years in the everyday educational system. Not to mention that sudden apple craze that started somewhere in the early 2000s that kinda distracted everyone from everything that existed previously and honestly really launched the Apple company to its current shell of a company. Believe it or not my first computer was one of those large All in one MACs at the time, with a Windows 7/Vista computer coming a bit later as a gift from my father. It's strange to say this but for a long time, I had never come into much contact computers till after 2008 or so. Yes unfortunately as sad as it to say, but I came from an Apple Fan Family.

    The RPI does read and write to card. You can install it on a usb flash drive or even a hard drive but it still requires a boot kernel to remain in the SD card.
    The 3B and 3B+ can boot directly from USB without having to have a Micro SD card inserted. You have to set a burn once bit on the 3B, but the new 3B+ supports USB boot right out of the box. Only just noticed your comment above. Up until those models that was the case though.
