Hi guys

Tried the WinToUSB Free tool which works great for my build of a Windows 8.1 Pro portable USB drive.

Once done I have been able to boot to my PC with everything working great.

So, thinking this really is portable, I boot up another computer for testing to see how the portable drive will work and cope on an alternative system, which is simply being used to test/service the other PC if/when it has errors, needs fixing etc. This is a valid licence of Win 8.1 Pro.

While it boots really good, the activation of Windows is no longer valid, I assume once the activation period is over then it can no longer be used on an different computer for testing/service purposes. Or have I missed something? Or will the Pro version sort this out, I'm happy to buy if it does.
