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

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.
