Putting a Vhd(which has ultimate in it) in a Pen drive.. and booting

Hi

I've created a dynamic vhd .. and transferred Ultimate to it.. and it booted properly from the Hard disk..
but when i put the vhd into the pen drive .. it shows me the error .. saying .. not enough space.

So my question is .. is it possible to put a vhd on removable disk (USB) and boot from it ? if so .. how to do it ?

Thanks in advance

Microsoft has never supported installing any version of Windows on a removable drive. The one exception being Windows 8, Enterprise edition.
