Windows 8 To Go - Setup on a USB Flash Drive or USB Disk

  1. #160


    I'm about to redo my Windows on a USB stick, but this time using ImageX instead of DISM, also using Windows 8 32-bit instead of Windows 7.

    Nice! i spent 226 mins applying the image to USB, and spent another 3 hours waiting the OS to start booting up. It's barely finished booting now, with "Getting Device Ready at 20%" for like 60 mins. So, i gave up trying to boot windows 8 from USB 2.0.

    Hello MrShowdown,

    Yeah, unless it's USB 3.0, it really is to slow to want to use.

    Hi,

    I am hoping that someone here can help me. I am using Windows To Go, with great satisfaction, for sometime now.
    I have created a lot of WTG without any problem, except one thing: ESATA

    I can't get it to boot from an eSATA attach (HD) device, all others - USB2/3 - work flawlessly

    Is there anyone who could explaining why I am having this issue, and is there any solution/fix for this?

    Appreciate your help/answer!

    Simply put, eSATA does not support booting.

    Hi Casey,

    Thanks for replying, but are you really sure. I have been "googling" about this issue, and i had the impression, that some ppl out there where able to boot WTG from an eSATA attached HD

    Well WTG was meant for USB only. If it were meant to work with eSATA, there would be official documentation.

    Hello Admin, I also done all the procedures from 1 t 5 steps but I was unable to do that..the error of cmd is given below. I used path
    C:\Users\Jahirul Islam\Desktop\imagex.exe" /apply N:\sources\install.wim 1 L:\

    I notice that after mount the KB3AIK_EN.ISO file there is no source file that would be the problem.
