Well, I'm at my wit's end here with getting 7 virtualized and portable.
And that's why I come here to see if creating a virtual hard drive onto a flash drive and then installing 7 on it is possible. I honestly didn't realize that Windows can support virtualization until a while ago...
So I'd say I'm pretty new to Hyper-V, is that what it's called?
I don't have much knowledge of how to use it properly and I'd love some info from you guys on how to use it. Most importantly, does it operate like VMware, where you can run the operating system in tandem? What are its benefits and drawbacks?
Also, does it support USB based virtual hard drives?
In case if you're wondering why I need this, it's because my ultimate goal of getting Office 2010 installed on it and take it where ever, a foreign laptop, puter, best buy, colleges, meth labs, strip clubs, anywhere. But Microsoft seems to be making this task difficult with Office's ridiculous anti-piracy measures that are screwing the process up and having Windows not able to install on whatever drive. I understand that running an operating system off a flash drive is somewhat slow, but it's better than nothing in my book.
I'm getting to the point of installing ubuntu and making it look like 7, then using Wine to get Office installed. I kind of don't want to do that since ubuntu is a whole other beast for super, uber geeks.
