Some notes on Windows To Go - http://www.mistyrebo...ToGo/index.html

I've posted in the Windows 8 section as the Windows To Go feature was implemented in Windows 8. Also applies to Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.

:cheers:

Thanks for the guide. Can you explain about the registry SanPolicy 4. A normal WinToGo booted from USB makes all internal drives offline anyway, so why is this necessary?

@steve6375
In my own tests using an image applied via wimlib-imagex all disks have been online and visible when Windows has finished installing. I've never used the Windows To Go workspace creator - this may automatically apply the sanpolicy settings.

I usually use WinToUSB to make a WinToGo VHD in just a few clicks. You can then create BCDs for it for UEFI-booting if you wish (I usually MBR-boot it by simply copying the VHDs to my E2B USB drive).
