    Hi,

    @Jimbo45: Whenever you stay in Brussels for more than I few days let me know. We could meet at a pub if you like. I'm about an hour away from the capital.
    In the mean time, enjoy the beer(s).


    Cheers,

    Yes you can. Just follow my tutorial (the HDD part is in chapter B): Windows 8 To Go - Setup on a USB Flash Drive or USB Disk
