  Windows 10: Possible to use drive encryption on external drive with Windows 10?
Posted by: gregg098 - 03-02-2016, 11:14 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

I used WintoUSB to install Windows 10 home to an external drive. Works great right now. If I were to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, would Bitlocker work on the drive since its booted from USB?

Or, is there a better solution that still encrypts the entire drive AND lets me boot from it?

  Can only create VHD (Legacy, VHDX grayed out) UPDATE:MUST USE WIN8/10 HOST FOR VHDX
Posted by: woody123 - 03-01-2016, 03:44 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (3)


VHD works great, but how does one create a Legacy or VHDX stick when those options are grayed out?

I've been successful in converting the VHD to VHDX via Hyper-V Manager,

but not successful yet in getting it to boot by changing the device with BCDEDIT:

bcdedit /set {new_guid} device vhd=WinToUSB.vhdx

Is there a better procedure?

  Performance of SanDisk Extreme 64 GB and VHDX
Posted by: SuperJMN - 02-24-2016, 08:35 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (4)

I've ran some different installations from the USB thumb drive and I usually experience severe slowdowns. Usually, the disk usage tops 100% for several minutes and the response time goes up and down from 0 to more than 16 seconds.

This is a screen capture of the Task Manager while this happens. The system, while it happens is almost unusable, and it happens quite often.

What could we do to avoid this?

  Cloning stuck at 0%
Posted by: mjv - 02-19-2016, 04:40 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

Dear dev team,

I'm running Windows 10 Home (just downloaded from Microsoft) with Boot Camp on a MacBook Pro 2015.
I used the app BootIce 1.3.1 to prepare my USB 3.0 stick for UEFI with two partitions.
The first time cloning the existing worked fine (and quite quick). I just made the error that I didn't increase the virtual disk size in VHDX mode. But the Windows booting from the USB worked perfectly.
But still with too little space left, I reformatted the USB drive again.

Now however, the cloning in Windows PE seems to get stuck at 0%.
No error code whatsoever.

Thanks in advance!

  Win 8.1 Pro recognised as enterprise?
Posted by: rob - 02-10-2016, 03:01 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

Hi Forum, I'm trying to use the free version of WinToUSB 2.8 to install Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit downloaded directly from the Microsoft VLSC as a Windows to Go partition.

However, WinToUSB gives me an error that I can't install Enterprise versions of Windows with the free version of WinToUSB.

Any tips on why WinToUSB is recognising Win 8.1 Pro as enterprise?

Thanks for any help!

  orange and white lines
Posted by: mov51 - 01-28-2016, 07:15 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (7)

i have used this program befor (withing in the last 4 months) and it worked fine. i think the changed factor is now i am using an external hard drive that has a terabyte instead of 500 gb. i have 500 gb partitioned as separate storage and 40 as the system partition. the remaining is the boot. whenever i try to boot (i have tried on three pcs) it gives more orange and yellow lines as if the graphics card is mess up but one of them runs from my other external drive that has windows on it. so that can't be the problem. if anyone could help me out that would be great if you need more info i would happily supply it.

  Unable to create WinToUsb installation
Posted by: mariomarano - 01-27-2016, 09:32 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (5)

Hello, i've been trying to use WinToUSB to create a portable windows 10 x86 installation on a VHD placed on my external hard drive. Unfortunately it seems not to work, as WinToUSB can't see my external drive properly (it is a freshly formatted NTFS 1TB toshiba hard drive).
What can i do to solve the issue?
Thanks in advance.

  Win8.1 to Mac - stuck at Windows logo
Posted by: anawfullot - 01-27-2016, 10:59 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (4)

Hello there,

I installed Windows 8.1x64 on a 64GB USB 3.0 Stick using WinToUSB and everything seemed to work fine. Only when I try to actually boot from the USB (using a late 2013 Macbook Pro) I get stuck at the Windows logo and the loading animation, it doesn't initialize installation.

Am I maybe too impatient? Left it for almost 7 hours with no result. W/R speed of the stick is around 70 mb/s.
Did I make a mistake in formatting the USB drive to be bootable on a Macbook?
Or is it something else?

I'd be highly thankful if someone could help me.
