Microsoft has never supported installing Windows (except Windows 8 Enterprise edition) on an external drive. It may be possible but not recommended.

Agree. I think one of our experienced members managed that, and it was, if I recall his words correctly " as slow as treacle". Its not worth it.

Be sure you understand that "Windows to go" is for Windows 8 Enterprise edition. This is not a commercial product but available only to large organizations with bulk licensing. Other editions do not qualify.
