Lightbulb USB 3.0 on Win7 installed on external HDD with WinToUsb?
Posted by: razand - 12-23-2014, 11:57 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (2)

Due to office policy and protected software, I am successfully using the "system installed on external HDD" solution for more than 5 years. With Xp and Win7. But the installation was always a very tricky and complicated part, with lots of steps, a lot of time spent searching the web and different settings. Some additional advanced skills were required, not for everybody.
I have found your software recently. It worked for me with no problems. Helped me a lot. Really great job! Very nice and simple tool you have created. Thank you!

Last time I installed Win 7 Ultimate, using WinToUsb, some days ago. Easy and no problems.
But I got stuck since then in the idea of trying to install USB 3.0 support for my new system.
Before, in my previous installations, not using wintousb, I still didn't have that, it was on USB 2.0. It is ok, working. For the programs didn't feel any difference compared to a normal installation. But for the file handling, USB 3.0 can change a lot the speed.

So, as you said, Win7 is not offering support for USB 3.0. I've digged some time on the internet and found out that you can find USB3.0 drivers for win 7 and you can install them separately.
Unfortunately, there seem to be a bug in this and when you install them, before and during installation, you have to disconnect all the USB devices connected. Which is not possible running the system on a USB HDD. Logically Smile Otherwise you will get a nice blue screen on the next boot, after installation of USB 3.0 drivers and the system must be restored to fix it.

I am thinking that a possible solution would be installing Win 7 on the internal drive and then adding the USB 3.0 drivers and then using your very new added feature "Clone current system to an USB drive". What do you think?
Since I already installed Win7, with everything, including a lot of big softwares, which took a lot of time, another possible solution in my case, it would be to clone the already installed USB HDD to an internal HDD (here I am not sure that it will work smoothly and that the win7 installation will still work), then install the USB3.0 drivers on the internal HDD and then clone back the HDD to external, or use your new added tool for that. What do you say?

Thanks in advance for your reply, and thank you again anyway for the great job with this software Smile

  Clone Win OS to ext. drive without losing it on laptop?
Posted by: Davidslegend - 12-04-2014, 12:48 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - No Replies

Hello:

I read about WinToUSB on Lifehacker.com & was wondering if I could use my current Win laptop to clone the OS to try it out on an external hard drive.

Goal 1: Run Windows on External Hard drive when using my Mac computer
Goal 2: Run Office on the drive as well
Goal 3: Not lose current Window OS 8.1 on my second PC

Thank you for your response.

Best Regards,
davidslegend

Question Clean up the Windows To Go drive
Posted by: davidinfodom - 11-22-2014, 08:42 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (4)

Hi All,
I just installed a 8.1 Enterprise on WinToGo disk.
And so I of course tried to connect the drive on several different machines, just to test if it was really working on any machine or not: of course it worked great each time.
Thus I realized something: each time you connect the WinToGo on a new machine, it will first install new files to adapt itself to the host so it can run smoothly.
Therefore each time we do that, the available free space on the disk is of course decreasing.
So here comes the question : is there a way to clean up the WinToGo drive to remove all the files which match a host we won't use anymore ?

Hoping someone will know, I thank you in advance for your feedback.

KR,
David

(Also just for information for those who would be interested : my WinToGo drive is an SSD Crucial M500 240Gb, placed in an IcyBox USB 3.0 compatible UASP.
And honestly this Win 8.1 ToGo drive works much faster than my current Win 7 x64 host system standing an WD500gb !! Really awesome Smile )

Sad Does not Boot
Posted by: Peeker - 11-18-2014, 12:18 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

ok heres the problem I have used wintousb to install windows 7 64 bit on a PNY 128gb USB 3.0 flash drive. the program does the install fine, very slowly but fine. I have tried using both an ISO and my install disc the problems is the drive wont boot every time I try I get the "Disk read error Press cntl-alt-del" I have formatted the drive to be bootable but every time I use the program it insists on reformatting the drive again and I think its wiping out the boot sector so my basic question is what the heck is going on here? and how do I fix this problem? I just bought this drive specifically for this purpose so I don't want to waste $50.00 so could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong here.....
