    What phone is it that you have plugged into your PC running Windows 8 To Go?

    And could provide a screenshot or more details about what happens when you try to open the Windows Store?

    Is this Windows 8 Pro install a Windows To Go install on an external drive, or a regular install on your internal hard drive? The reason I ask is because in your first post you stated, "When i plugged my phone in storage option to PC, windows turn this (WTG) on.". Windows To Go isn't a feature you turn on and off, and as far as I know, its not included in Windows 8 Pro. It's only available in the Enterprise edition.

    Another question, did you set up Windows To Go through the little applet in Windows 8 Enterprise or did you use Windows Automated Installer Kit (WAIK) to do it?

    My guess is that the Windows Store might not be thoroughly set up in your part of the world for Windows To Go, or can you access it on your computer that is running Windows 8 natively installed?

    The Store is turned off by default on my Windows To Go Enterprise setup. Also the Enterprise WTG application will only let you use an Enterprise WIM/image to create the WTG install. As far as I can tell, you would have to use the WAIK method to make an 8 Pro WTG.

    Have you installed "Windows 8 to Go Pro" on USB-Stick ?
    Is USB-Stick recognized as "removal disk" ?
    • Then the store doesn't work
    • Then updates doesn't work
    • Then system restore doesn't work
      • Because System restore doesn't work -> Upgrade to Media Center Edition doesn't work (want make a restore point before Upgrade)

    Install an USB driver that recognizes an USB-Stick as "local disk" (e.g. "cfadisk" / "xpfildrvr") and all the problems are gone.

    Shoot! There are still problems with Windows 8 To Go that replacing the driver on the flash drive with a hard drive one can only fix?!
