Windows To Go Gotcha in Windows 10

So here’s an interesting fact about Windows To Go.  When Windows 10 first came out I was still running Windows 8.1 on my corporate desktop, and when I went to create my WTG image I couldn’t because the Windows 8.1 WTG engine did not support building Windows 10 WTG keys.  Ok, that is understandable.

Windows 10: The last operating system Microsoft will release, right?  Well my corporate laptop is on Build 1607, and when I downloaded the latest build (1703) it would not recognize it.  So my two options are:

  1. Download the earlier build and make my key based on that build; or
  2. Take the time to upgrade my laptop.

With all due respect Microsoft, if you are going to tell us that Windows 10 is the last desktop OS, don’t pull these games.  As a tech guru I understood right away what the problem was… How much time do you think the regular Joe trying to use your products would have spent on this?
