Just out of curiosity whether or not that you have had luck booting Windows 10 October Update (1809) from an external SSD? Windows 10 1803 worked flawlessly however when attempting 1809 back in October and again yesterday it fails to boot with a BSOD advising that the “Driver Unloaded Without Cancelling Pending Operations”.
I definitely do not think that it’s your software and rather my setup (Lenovo X1 Yoga 3rd Gen) or Microsoft trying to stop third-party Windows To Go setups with the newer build. Unfortunately I cannot get the BSOD Logs as it freezes the BSOD screen and requires a restart each time.
