Q: (from Jeff)
So, I wanted to show a customer the Windows to Go. They previously consolidated their enterprise on Open value in Windows XP, but have since upgraded to a mix of Vista Business and Windows 7 pro with OEM licensing. I can’t seem to make one of the Windows to Go USB sticks work.
I have an ActionPack subscription, but does that include the Windows 8 Enterprise edition or is that just a Pro edition? If I don’t have it, how can I get a Windows to Go USB stick to show them?
Just to remind you – Windows To Go requires “specific” certified USB memory sticks. Here is the Windows landing page for Windows to Go that includes links to all of the approved vendors’ products:
The Microsoft Action Pack Subscription no longer appears to include a license to Windows Enterprise:
so I recommend that you download the 90 day trial:
There are lots of tutorials on how to create and use a Windows To Go image on our Technet site. At the end of this week on Friday 11/08 at 12:30pm EST, I will be hosting a “Sell What You Know” session for D&H Distribution on Windows to Go (https://www.livemeeting.com/cc/microsoft/join?id=8W7R88&role=attend&pw=5135428) if you would like to join us – no registration required.
