Hey Vancouver, Eight is NOT Enough!

eightcastshotAre you coming to the Windows 8 Install Fest in Vancouver this week-end?  It was recently brought to my attention that a mailing went out letting people know that I will be discussing and demonstrating Windows To GO (WTG).  If you want to follow along, bring along an 8GB USB key.

I do not know where that came from, but at no point was I asked about this.  Windows To Go will not install on an 8GB key… nor will it install on any non-supported standard USB key.

For a list of supported (certified) keys, check out the article my colleague Anthony Bartolo wrote  in February by clicking here.

I hope to see you tomorrow morning!  If you are not registered yet, please do so here!

  1. Follow up question: Anthony lists named USB keys, what about generic branded ones that are handed out from time to time. Other than capacity, how can you tell if it will work?

    1. Very simple: They won’t. The USB keys have to be partitionable, which most generic keys are not.
