  Internal HDD to External HDD
Posted by: Diverene - 12-30-2015, 06:26 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (3)

Huh Hi there.

I would like to install in my HP Laptop 8740 a SSD evo850 and use the currend HDD with WIN7 pro x64 installed on it as an external USB 3.0 Boot HDD.
On the internal SSD I will install WIN10 pro x64.
I would like to make a dual boot, WIN7 external and WIN10 internal.
My question is: can I make my internal HDD external bootable without loss of my data and installed programms?
I have read the instructions but didn't find my answer (or didn't understand it Angel ).

Thanx in advance!

  BSOD after Win7 SP1 update?
Posted by: toddk63 - 12-17-2015, 01:34 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (7)

I have successfully installed WintoUSB / Win 7 Ultimate on a WD Passport 1TB USB drive running off of a Dell Laptop (Latitude e6120 ?).  The laptop only has USB 2, no USB 3.0.  After many updates (no problems) and then the SP1 big update I get BSOD "Stop: 0x00000050" after the Win7 splash screen. There is no further info as to which file or driver is causing this. So then I found the Win 7 ISO with SP1 on it already.  This seemed to work as well, then after a couple of updates...BSOD!  It will boot in Safe Mode. There is no minidump file generated. I need to check if minidump is enabled. I have uninstalled the last 4 Windows updates, but one of them, KB2515325, keeps re-installing itself on reboot even though I have selected "No automatic install..."  This is suspicious.

I've seen lots of threads about BSOD from trying to boot WintoUSB/Win7 from USB 3.0 but nothing like I have described.

Any ideas?

  Create Options
Posted by: Paul D. - 12-10-2015, 02:44 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - No Replies

Sorry if I missed this in the docs (rtfm) but can someone explain what the three options (Legacy, VHD, VHDx I think) are after formating the device? I won't get overwhelmed if you give a lot of detail Smile

  WinToUsb SanDisk Extreme CZ80 life?
Posted by: sevano - 12-03-2015, 06:16 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)


I've just tried WinToUsb with my old harddrive via usb 2.0 connection, i've installed win 8.1 and surprised how fast it is with an old drive and a usb 2.0.

I'm now planning to buy Sandisk Extreme CZ80 and will install windows 10 64 bit, and run it from my laptops usb 3.0.

Does it have a trim support or is it reliable ? How long it should last, i will use it for web develpment and will not copy-erase large amounts of data, also will disable superfetch options to make the usb flash life better.

Has anybody used the flash drive for a year and had problem ?

  Win to USB, VHD's and updating
Posted by: Mack - 12-01-2015, 07:08 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)


I have a MacBook Air and I'm using win to usb to run Windows 10 via a 64Gb USB stick.

I use it mainly for a few older games and it's running well however I have a couple of questions:

When I boot into Windows I've noticed the C drive is created from a VHD file contained on the USB stick. The file and the remaining space show as the D drive. Some things such as the DX9 files I need for older games install to the virtual C drive so space is very tight. Is it 
possible to resize the virtual drive? Does running software from the VHD incur any noticeable performance decrease over running directly from the stick?

Secondly I've tried to update Windows 10 however after downloading the updates Windows states it can not install to a virtual hard drive. How can I fix this?

  Certified IronKey W300 USB + WinToUSB + Windows 8/10 + Bitlocker for OS Drive works?
Posted by: digiuser - 11-27-2015, 06:53 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)


I'm really hoping somebody can help me before I spend the money on a Certified Windows To Go USB Stick - The IronKey Workspace W300.

I need to be able to create a WindowsToGo stick on this drive, which is certified for WindowsToGo, however I want to use Windows 8/10 Home or Pro rather than Enterprise.

A requirement is that the OS drive can be encrypted using BitLocker.

I successfully got WindowsToGo to work with Windows 8.1 Pro on a non-certified USB Stick using the VHD/VHDX method, however you can't encrypt the OS Drive when it's a VHD/VHDX, it's just not possible. So unfortunately that is not an option.

I am wondering if it's possible to do this with a certified USB Stick? When I use WinToUSB on a regular flash drive it blanks out the Legacy option and forces me to use a VHD option.

Any help will be greatly appreciated...

P.S I am using the free version of WinToUSB at the moment. Looking to buy the flash drive very soon but don't want to blow £100 if it's not going to work as needed.
