Seeing the price of internal SSD's and the cost of external's being about 60% cheaper, I sprang for a PNY 890? GB external SSD to run my operating system on. Without the bottle neck of a spinning disk, I was correct in my assumption that running Windows 10 off of USB 3.0 would be much, much faster than my SATA 3.0 platter. I guess I should have done my research even just a little bit with running OS on an USB device. Even though I set the Regedit flag to 0 for "Windows To Go", I am still faced with three problems:
- "Windows to Go" does not allow for in place upgrades, and would need to do a fresh install of what ever I want to upgrade to.
- "Windows to Go" does not have a Recovery Partition, I can create restore points, I have not dared see if they work.
- "Windows to Go" will allow me to get to "Windows RE" menu's, but when I try to use anything including Command Prompt which will open, all functional tasks are not allowed.
