66 WINDOWS TO GO = PORTABLE WORKSPACE

WINDOWS TO GO = PORTABLE WORKSPACE

You can make a bootable USB flash drive or USB hard drive that can boot up any computer with a portable copy of "Windows 8 Pre-beta". When this feature is finally completed, this method of booting will protect you from accessing or modifying any files or folders that are on the internal hard drive(s) of the computer that you use.

66

67 WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

When this feature is completed, a "Portable Workspace Creator" applet in "Windows 8" can be used to create BitLocker-encrypted USB flash drives that can be used to boot up any computer that has an adequate processor and RAM. The "Portable Workspace Creator" applet is not available inside the "Windows 8 Pre-beta".

67

68 WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

At the present time, the half-baked "Windows To Go" capability of "Windows 8 Pre-beta.." is functional enough for you to try out this future feature of "Windows 8.." with the following three limitations: Limitation 1: BitLocker encryption is not placed on the bootable hard drive or USB flash drive when you create a bootable "Windows To Go" USB hard drive, using "Windows 8 Pre-beta".

68

69 WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

Limitation 2: The "Portable Workspace Creator" applet is not available inside the "Windows 8 Pre-beta". According to Microsoft's blogs, this feature has been available in some early non-public "Pre-betas" and this feature will be definitely available in the future "Release to Manufacturing" version of "Windows 8".

69

70 WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

and Limitation 3: If you boot up "Computer A" with a bootable "Windows To Go" external hard drive or USB flash drive and then you boot up "Computer B" with the same "Windows To Go" external hard drive or USB flash drive, then you will be unable to boot up "Computer A" with the same bootable "Windows To Go" external hard drive or USB flash drive.

70

71 WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

WINDOWS TO GO (continued)

Because of "Limitation 3", right after you create the bootable "Windows To Go" external hard drive or USB flash drive and before you use it to boot up a computer, you should use "Acronis True Image Home.." or "Clonezilla" to immediately create an image of your bootable "Windows To Go" external hard drive or USB flash drive. This hard drive image can then be used to restore the bootable "Windows To Go" hard drive if and when it fails to boot up a target computer.

Hopefully, these three limitations will not exist in the future "Release to Manufacturing" production version of "Windows 8" that is sold in 2012. For more information on "Windows To Go", see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766465(WS.10).aspx and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_To_Go

Because of "Limitation 2", the current process for creating a bootable "Windows To Go" bootable USB hard drive consists of the following procedure from within a command prompt window inside a "Windows 8 Pre-beta" virtual machine or physical computer: Run a few "diskpart" commands. Run the "imagex.exe" command. Run the "bcdboot.exe" command.

Use "Acronis True Image Home.." or "Clonezilla" to immediately create an image of your bootable "Windows To Go" USB external hard drive or USB flash drive. If you are using a "USB flash drive" for your "Windows To Go" hard drive, use "Clonezilla" to create your backup image, since "Acronis True Image Home.." will not allow you to do this.

If you are using a USB external hard drive, you can either use "Acronis True Image Home.." or "Clone" to make your backup image.

If you boot up "Computer A" with your "Windows To Go" external USB hard drive and then you boot up "Computer B" with the same external USB hard drive, you will need to use the "Restore" capabilities of "Acronis True Image Home" or "Clonezilla" to restore your external USB hard drive before you can use your external USB hard drive to boot up "Computer A" again.

The attendees of the "Windows 8 / Hardware SIG" of the "Tucson Computer Society have had great success in their attempts to use the above procedure to create bootable "Windows To Go" hard drives with external USB hard drives. We have successfully created bootable external hard drives from 9 different models of external hard drives/enclosures.

However, we have failed in all of our attempts to use 32-Gigabyte "Sandisk" "Cruzer" USB flash drives to create bootable "Windows to Go" hard drives to run the 64-bit version of "Windows 8 Pre-beta". All of these attempts resulted in a USB flash drive that failed to boot.

We partially succeeded when we used a 32-Gigabyte "Sandisk" "Cruzer" USB flash drive to create a bootable "Windows To Go" drive that ran the 32-bit version "Windows 8 Pre-Beta". This 32 Gigabyte USB flash drive successfully booted up our Sony "VGN" "Core 2 Duo" laptop with "Windows 8 Pre-beta 32-bit".

However, the bundled copy of "Internet Explorer 10 beta" failed to start in both the "Metro Internet Explorer" mode and in the legacy "Desktop" mode. As a workaround, we were able to run command-line FTP to mozilla.org and download the installation file for "Mozilla Firefox 7.0.1". After running this setup file, we were able to run "Mozilla Firefox.." to access the "Web".

We know that Microsoft has been able to create bootable USB flash drives which run the 64-bit version of one of the versions of "Windows 8 Pre-beta", because they gave stacks of them to the software developers at the BUILD conference in Anahiem, California in September 2011.
