  Installation of Windows on USB Drive fails
Posted by: TechnoMax - 09-13-2020, 07:25 PM - Forum: WinToUSB (Best Windows To Go Creator) - Replies (3)

I wanted to backup my PC Windows from a bootable Acronis drive. It failed because my PC partitions have Bitlocker encryption. I then tried to make a new pure windows install with my paid WinToUSB (Version 5.6 Release 1 Build from August 10 2020) on an external USB hard disk to install Acronis to it and open the encrypted PC partition with Bitlocker from this external Windows. But it did not work:
WinToUSB did not write any files to the USB drive only the folder and file structure. The progress indicator remained at zero all the time. I tried to install Windows from my notebook to and it was the same. One error message was that WinToUSB could not extract files from the WIM file. The source ISO was downloaded freshly from Microsoft in both cases.
I used two versions of Windows-ISO, two hard drive enclosures, two 250GB hard drives, two differrent computers both only running Windows Defender as antivirus software (I had to kill Acronis Protection).

But when I ran WinToUSB from my WtU-copy of my main system (on an external SSD) suddenly I could write an windows installation on to a external USB hard drive, including a working percentage info. (Unfortunately my first attempt for this windows pure thing did not boot properly and crashed while still in boot.)

What went wrong?

  VMware Workstation 15 high CPU load on host
Posted by: chrie - 09-13-2020, 06:01 PM - Forum: WinToUSB (Best Windows To Go Creator) - Replies (3)


I use Win10 2014 on a 1 TB SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD. The installation work quite fine and fast, but when I start a VM in VMware Workstation 15.5.6 build-16341506 the host system shows a high CPU load (the VMware Workstation VMX consume the CPU) in idle and gets under load much higher (the same VM on the same host with a default Windows installation performs smoothly and consumes 10% of the CPU). I tried the WinToGo installation on different hardware platforms all BIOS/UEFI settings for virtualization are on. I assume there are some registry keys in the WinToGo installation which makes the life of the hypervisor difficult.

  Keeping a Windows to Go Drive uptodate
Posted by: TechnoMax - 08-29-2020, 06:02 AM - Forum: WinToUSB (Best Windows To Go Creator) - Replies (11)

I have several small USB-SSDs with bootable copies of my Windows boot partition. I do not want to write too often to these drives and therefor thought it coul be a good idea to use a sychronising app (SecondCopy) to "simply" make the USB-SSD the same as my PC -SSD (Exact copy, copy source to destination, delete obsolete files from destination) . But even when I booted from a WinToUSB drive and copied the files "cold" from the PC to another WinToUSB drive it did not work. Inoticed that the latest programms I had installed on the PC did not show up on the copy that should have been identical. Went something wrong or is it simply no good idea to try it the way I did?

  Is it possible to dual boot with Linux?
Posted by: 0ravla - 08-24-2020, 12:07 AM - Forum: WinToUSB (Best Windows To Go Creator) - Replies (2)


I have an SSD with Arch Linux installed, and I can boot from it just plugging it to an USB and selecting it on the boot menu. I would like to install Windows 10 alongside Linux, to be able to boot from any of them.

I made a NTFS partition on the SSD and tried to install Windows on it. However, I got the typical error “Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Setup does not support configuration of or installation to disks connected through a USB or IEEE 1394 port”.

Is it possible to install Windows in that partition with WinToUSB? Will it break my Linux installation?

Thanks in advance! ^^

  WinToUSB does not allow changing Page File Settings!
Posted by: MarkGerazz - 07-27-2020, 11:03 AM - Forum: WinToUSB (Best Windows To Go Creator) - Replies (2)


I'm trying to play Red Dead 2 and the only fix for running out of virtual memory is by setting the Page File Size to Automatic, or something custom. I fixed this on my desktop before. Now, on my laptop, the settings don't save no matter what. Yes I hit "set", "apply", "restart". Does not save. Weird because on my desktop "automatic" is already engaged.

  In my external drive, I created a partition for bootcamp
Posted by: eresall - 07-27-2020, 04:16 AM - Forum: WinToUSB (Best Windows To Go Creator) - Replies (3)

But in "Please select the destination disk" part, the only option it's giving me is what seems like the entire external drive.
It says:
Disk 1: WD easystore 2647

Which seems to be the name of my whole drive? (I have a portion of it named Bootcamp; it's empty and )

Does WintoUSB allow using only a portion of the drive as bootcamp or does it require the whole drive to be dedicated to bootcamp?

Or, since I have only the Bootcamp portion of my drive formatted to MS-DOS, will WintoUSB only affect that part of my drive and leave other partitions alone?

  WinToUSB License Question
Posted by: mconwell - 07-18-2020, 01:35 AM - Forum: WinToUSB (Best Windows To Go Creator) - Replies (1)

The professional license indicates that I can register WinToUSB on 2 computers.  

I will be using 1 license on a VM to install Windows on a USB drive.  I'm concerned that if that VM is destroyed or somehow lost, is that license forever gone?  

Or is the license saying that I can only create 2 USB Windows installations?
