Installing Windows to a USB drive

This is NOT about putting the ISO on a thumbdrive, to be clear.  This is about installing to a USB drive.

 

Once upon a time I installed Windows 7 to a USB hard drive.  It involved some reach-around with a registry edit, which I forget as it was so long ago.

 

More recently, I tried to do the same with Windows 10, however it's not digging it.  Is anyone aware of whether it is still possible to do this, and if so, how?

Installing Win10 onto a flash drive can be done.  What you're looking for is something called "Windows to Go".

 

Once you're done, you'll be able to boot up off the drive to launch Windows 10. Microsoft offers a tool called Windows to Go, which can generate a bootable Windows USB drive. ... The one disadvantage is that Windows 10 runs much more slowly off a USB flash drive than it does off your hard drive.     Mar 9, 2017

 

There is better information on this website.
