Boot Windows from USB Flash Drive?

Post by Will.Rubin »

Wiki features chart has note saying, "Boot from USB ports is supported by BIOS, but Windows OS cannot be booted from USB."

Does that mean I can't boot from a flash drive to install Windows?
Or does that just mean I can't run Windows from a flash drive?

I installed Windows 10 from external DVD drive connected to USB. I suppose that booting from USB flash drive would work in the same way.

Thanks for the reply. I would hope it would boot Windows from a flash drive as it's pretty common these days and the way I've installed Windows and Linux on Fit-PCs, Intense PCs, and one uSRV machine. Guess I'll find out soon enough. A couple Airtops arrive next week. I'll post back after I verify.
