  Can't install WTG on my external SSD
Posted by: Cforrester1981 - 12-01-2017, 02:34 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (6)

I have a Lenovo laptop that unfortunately only came with a 32GB onboard NAND flash drive which is HOPELESSLY too small for Windows 10 and MS Office. It also has no SATA port on the motherboard so I have resorted to getting a 120gb Western Digital SSD drive and putting it into a USB3 external drive enclosure and I want to install Windows to it.

I have created a a single NTFS partition on the drive, formatted it and assigned a drive letter. I then tried to run the WinToUSB using my Windows.iso file created yesterday using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool. However, when I click Proceed, it tell me to install a USB drive and hit Refresh.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I've successfully managed to do a WTG installation on my 32GB USB flash drive but this SSD won't work.

Any help would be appreciated.

  Creating a normal Win10 system that runs from a USB(?)
Posted by: MartynA - 11-30-2017, 08:04 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (2)

What I started off trying to do is to use a MacBook's Bootcamp to run Win10 on it.  There isn't room for Win10 on the MacBook's internal disk, so I've been trying to make a USB with a copy of Win10 on it.  I got nowhere with trying to use the BootCamp Assistant to do that, and a bit of googling got me to WinToUSB.  But I'm getting nowhere with that either, because:

I've created a Win10 ISO image and used the Windows Installation USB Creator to put the image onto a Lexar 128 Gb USB drive.

My normal Win10 PC will boot from the USB fine, and enters the Windows SetUp program.  Where I run into the sand is at the step where I'm supposed to choose a partition to install Win10 onto.  What I want to do, of course, is to install it to the USB itself, but that's the one disk that the drop-down list of available disks doesn't list.  I've no idea whether the USB would be listed if there was space for another partition on it, but the Win10 Disk Management utility says there's no free space on it.

So I'm beginning to wonder if it's even possible to install a runnable version of Win10 on a bootable USB drive.  So my first q is wherther that is possible or not and, if it is, my next question is how to do it, seeing as the Win10 SetUp program won't give the option of installing it on the USB?  

I hope that's all clear,

Thanks Martyn

  I cannot get it to work!
Posted by: Braden'sPC's - 11-28-2017, 12:36 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (2)

When I try and create a Windows To Go Drive, I cannot ever select the system and boot partitions. It selects them for me and it's locked so that I cannot change it. I have tried MBR for BIOS, GPT for UEFI, and MBR for BIOS and UEFI. Nothing works. And the resulting drive is never bootable. What the heck?

Sad Flash Drive Back to Normal
Posted by: manos2864 - 11-01-2017, 09:21 AM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (1)

Hello guys,

I have a problem and i would like to solve it. I bought today a new usb flash drive (Lexar s75 JumpDrive USB 3.0 64 gb) and i used wintousb program.
I just wanted to install windows 8.1 to my usb flash drive. I followed the instructions. I chose .iso file then i click next. After that i chose my usb flash drive and a prompt message appeared and i click to GPT option with VHD option enabled. After that i click next and the process began.
I tested Windows 8.1 and was really really slow... so i decided to format the usb flash drive. I switched back to my main windows and i formated it.
The problem that i have now is.. my usb flash drive is very slow.
1. I use my flash drive in 3.0 usb port..
2. I have enabled in device manager > disk drives > Lexar usb > Properties Tab > Better Performance .
3. The format that i did was exFAT with 128 kilobytes allocation unit size. (I have perform the format procedure with Windows / Rufus / hp flash drive format tool)
4. In Disk Management when i choose the Lexar Usb drive, it says that it is a healthy (Primary Partition).
5. I check for bad sectors but everything is fine.

[Image: JBwziRA.png]

I attach an image with a test that i perform to check my usb flash drive write/read speeds. When i trying to transfer a file the speed starts with 20 Mb/s and then it drops to 200 kb/s and then back to 20 Mb/s or 30Mb/s and then again back to 500 kb/s. Please can you help me to bring back the speed of my flash drive?

  Multiple VHD on a single USB
Posted by: Leopold - 10-27-2017, 12:31 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (4)

When I use WinToUSB and create a WinToGo USB drive from a Windows 10 ISO for example, I see that a VHD file is created on the USB drive from which the OS boots. Now my question is, whether we can add a few more VHDs to that same USB drive, so that we can choose which of the VHDs I can boot up from, at startup ?

For example, I want to create a bootable WinToGo USB of Windows 10 using WinToUSB. SO I get an USB containing a VHD file.

Now I can create another such similar WinToGo on a different USB drive, That drive will also contain another VHD file.

Now, I want to add that second VHD also to the SAME [first] USB that WinToGo that I made, and I want the bootloader to ask me at startup as to what VHD I want to boot from...

Can you please tell me how I can do this ?


I have already seen this thread... Hoping to see more clearer steps on how exactly it can be done .. Thank you

  About disk optimized tool on WTG...
Posted by: Lavik - 10-13-2017, 05:26 PM - Forum: WinToUSB - Replies (5)

Hello, Guys,

I built the Windows 10 WTG (Professional Edition) on external SSD (USB3.0 to SATA3) and run it for 2 months, looks everything is good.
But I confused about disk optimized tool recently, because it shows my disk is "hard disk drive" in media type, not the "solid state drive". And looks the OS treats the SSD like a traditional hard disk to do defragmentation.

So I post a thread on other forum and try to know what happened. According the replies, I guess the rough conclusion is: if you build a WTG by the built-in tools of Windows 10 Enterprise Edition, you'll see the correct media type "Solid State Drive"; if you built by WinToUSB, you'll see the "Hard Disk Drive" like me. The point is the OS may not do the right things to the SSD drive.

I don't know wether it is a correct thought, so I post here and hope to have some help.

Anyone has any idea?

Thanks a lot for any help!

PS. Sorry, I don't mean WinToUSB is bad, actually it is a very good tools and helps me to finish WTG very easily. I just have a confused problem needs to be figured out. Thanks for the team of WinToUSB!!!
