Has anybody been able to make a Windows 7 equivalent of W8's Windows to go -- this is a FULL RUNNING Windows system that boots AND RUNS entirely from the external device and where you can also install standard Windows programs -- I even have Office and Adobe Photoshop installed on mine. The system will even run if there's NO HDD or a broken one in the host computer.
You can make various WINPE type of Windows 7 disks but anybody succeeded in running Windows 7 totally from an external HDD without needing ANYTHING from the Host such as a boot manager.
The only way I've managed this is by running a small Linux system and then running Windows as a VM from Linux but I'd rather have a real NATIVE portable Windows 7 system.
Anybody done this yet -- note a FULL running Windows 7 system --not an INSTALL or RECOVERY bootable disk.
(I have Windows 7 PRO, Ultimate and Enterprise so version is immaterial if someone has managed this on any of these Windows 7 versions).
