In this video, author Brian Culp discusses the purpose of Windows To Go. This is a feature of the Windows Enterprise or Education Editions that allows users to create full Windows installations that can be saved to a removable USB drive. In the lesson, Brian identifies the many prerequisites for deploying a Windows To Go solution, and also identifies the risks of ejecting a Windows To Go drive without using the Safely Eject Hardware procedure.
- [Voiceover] In this lesson, we'll lay the foundation…of understanding Windows To Go.…And I'll start by answering the question,…what is Windows To Go?…And I hate to use this phrase,…but it's one that actually fits here.…You can think of Windows To Go as Windows outside the box.…Windows To Go is Windows on a USB stick.…What does that mean?…Well, it means that instead of installing Windows…on a hunk of metal and silicone, and of course,…I'm referring to a desktop or laptop PC.…
Windows instead, is carried around on a USB stick…that's inserted into a host PC.…It just uses the host hardware.…The host PC then boots directly to the USB drive…and the Windows install uses the host's machine's hardware…with the exception of the hard drive.…So, as with many of the technologies that are covered…on the 697 exam, you should be familiar with them,…but I don't think it would be worth a lot of investment…of your time to configure a Windows To Go drive.…
You will use it if you have to.…And you'll use it…only under very specific deployment scenarios.…
