Windows 8 Can be Run from a USB Stick

Browse This Page

A leaked copy of Windows 8 spread like wildfire in the recent week. Daily new tidbits and features are being discovered about the new mammoth from Microsoft. The newest information rocking the market is the fact that the user with a retail disk can make actual usb copies of the operating system and carry them, like portable ubuntu.

This could also give piracy a whole new push with cds becoming the old and portable os becoming the new. Bootable Windows 8 on a USB 3.0 drive anyone? As tempting as it may sound, a minimum 16GB pendrive is required for the task and looks like USB 3.0 is yet to be found commercially.

    how can i do it

  • Hopefully it would be true – don’t see what Microsoft could lose from complementing the Linux OS (actually they could lose if customers switch to the free OSs such as Ubuntu, but………..). It would be better for users who want to use Linux for internet purposes (due to the better protection from viruses in linux) and Windows for gaming and the rest

  • even windows 7 can also be run via usb stick, i alwaz install win 7 via usb :P

    • not install windows7 via USB, this will allow you to install win 7 on the USB . Not just setup files but a bootable OS
