I want to ask if I can install windows 8 on a 32 gb removable flash drive?
I want some fast booting up and shutting down.
I will not remove the flash drive from the PC.

Please Answer !!

  1. It supports some removable options but as flash drives are EXTREMELY slow it would defeat the purpose. This is what SSDs are for but even a normal HDD would be way better than a flash drive.

    If you want fast booting and shutdown learn to use sleep mode. otherwise get an SSD.
  2. You could put a virtual machine onto a USB flash drive using Windows Virtual PC or similar.
  3. google how to make a "windows to go" USB thumb drive image

    I create one and it worked pretty well on usb 3.0, kind of slow on usb 2.0.
    also, you are going to want to get a fast USB thumb drive. (windows to go certified thumb drive's cost a lot)
