Windows 8: Windows To Go

Posted by

So finally I got my USB drive, I bought one from Super Talent (http://www.supertalent.com/WTG/)

So now it is time to try one of the new features in Windows 8 Enterprise SKU – Windows To Go, and safely bring your Operating System on a USB drive and start it from more or less any other PC.

This is how you create a Windows To Go, workspace.

Start “Windows To Go” from the Settings pane
