    Hi there
    This was an OLD post -- Windows to Go more than suffices and being a full windows system it's actually a lot more useful than some of the "Recovery" or "Magic" Cd stuff out there like Bartpe (sorry Bart -- great in it's time - had no equal but there's better tools out there today), or the various versions of Hirens CD or Magic boot etc etc.

    Windows to Go allows you also just to install any windows application too just like normal windows so not only can you use it as a recovery system but you can have your OWN versions of typical Windows programs like Office etc. --It's a GREAT PORTABLE windows system.

    Cheers

    I'm confused. How does Windows to Go allow you to boot an ISO from an hdd which was your original question? Also, WTG isn't a very generic solution since it is not readily available to many since it's only comes with Windows Enterprise.

    I googled it and didnt found a download source
    I think he meant burning an iso to a disk.
    EDIT:
    Could be this one:ISODisk, free software for mount and create ISO disk image
    Yes that is the one.


    Iso2disc, you can find here:

    Iso2disk is a typo
