We highly recommend using a certified usb flash drive or USB hard drive.

Running Win7/8 on a Removable drive is possible but Windows may not be able to run all Windows updates and there may be other problems too and you may nee to disable paging, etc. You can install a driver like cfadisk which force Windows to see the Removable Flash drive as a hard disk.
If your Sandisk is a Fixed-disk type ('Local drive'), then it should work fine.
P.S. Win 8.1 will not boot from a Removable drive at all ()you just get an everlasting circle of spinning dots)!
