    preparing demo software on a bootable USB Flash drive


    I would like to demonstrate a program to a potential user. This program requires the installation of MySQL and for the user to follow some instructions. Rather than risk that the user makes a mistake or finds any part of the installation inconvenient I am looking for alternatives.

    I considered sending a prepared computer but it risks that the user neglects to return the computer after evaluating the software.

    I am considering sending a prepared USB Flash drive with a bootable Windows 10 installation with the demo program and MySQL already installed. This raises the following questions.

    Is a bootable Windows 10 installation on a USB Flash drive authorized by the same license as the license on the machine that was used to create it? Who owns the Windows 10 license on the bootable USB Flash drive once the portable drive changes ownership? Is it necessary to purchase a Windows 10 license specifically for the portable drive?

    Many years ago, Windows seemed to work even if you moved a drive from one machine to another. For example, a co-worker used to boot a 5.25 inch disk drive at our place of work and when he wanted to do some work at home, he would unplug the data ribbon cable and power wires and carry the hard drive to his home. He would boot it at his home without difficulty. He would bring the drive back to the office and it would boot without difficulty.

    Things may be different today. Will Windows 10 on a USB Flash drive readily boot no matter which machine reads the device?

    :)

  3. Lost Data while preparing USB Bootable Media

    Hi,

    I will certainly help you with the Windows 10 USB preparation.

    This might be happened due to flash drive got formatted with the same file system where windows installation need to be prepared.

    In order to understand more about the query please answer the below questions.


    • Let us know how you prepared the Windows 10 installation image on your flash drive?

    • Are you preparing it through Media Creation Tool?
    Note: While creating a USB installation media, the flash drive will only begin to start preparing the image only after performing a format to the drive.
    This is an essential part recommended by Microsoft.

    I suggest you to go through the below article about how to install Windows 10 using Media Creation Tool, and check if it helps.

    Please get back to us with an update and we are glad to assist.

    Thank you.

    preparing demo software on a bootable USB Flash drive

    Multi-bootable USB

    Hey guys from TPU, couldn't find any specific thread pertaining to the question asked on title. As mentioned, I'm trying to create a bootable USB, but with many specifics boots available.

    I've been trying to create one with multiple boot device including one that enables me to run Windows 10 directly on the USB Thumb Drive but to no avail.

    The list of bootable images i'm trying to create are

    1. Windows 10 (A full OS running from thumb drive)
    2. Windows 10 ISO (Bootable disk image for fresh install)
    3. MemTest86+

    Have tried YUMI or UUI from the website USB PenDrive Linux but as this is my first time, i don't know how am i screwing up or am doing it right.. Anyone got a rough idea on a step by step guide? Thanks!
