Microsoft released a new feature called “Windows To Go” with Windows 8. With this feature it is possible to boot your Windows 8 from a USB drive on any PC. In this post I show you how you can do this.
First let me show you my setup to begin with.
I have my System Drive (C:), the USB drive I want to use (E:) and the Windows 8 ISO mounted (F:)
list disk” you can list all your disk
Now select your usb drive (select disk 1) and clean it. After that you can create a new partition and format that and close diskpart.
select disk 1
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs quick
Now in my case the ISO is mounted as drive F:. Now with dism I can apply the Windows Image to my USB drive (E:)
dism /apply-image /imagefile=f:\sources\install.wim /index:1 /applydir:e:\
Now you have to make this drive bootable
bcdboot e:\windows /s e: /f ALL
now you are done. You can now boot your USB drive. The first boot will take some time to setup.
If you want to know more about Windows To Go I recommend you the
Microsoft session from the BUILD conference.

Some months ago I made a blog entry about “
Install CentOS on Windows 8 Hyper-V“. Now with the new Linux kernel 3.0 the Hyper-V Integration Components are integrated in the kernel. Now Ubuntu 12.04 will be based on the new Linux kernel and this is why it should run perfectly on Microsoft Hyper-V.
Download Ubuntu on Ubuntu.com. Until 12.04 is released you can download the daily builds from
here. Start the Hyper-V Manager and create a new Virtual Machine
Install Ubuntu 12.04
after the Installation everything should work fine

Today I had a strange problem on a Cisco UCS installation. After you enabled Hyper-V on a Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1, you will get a black screen.
Cisco fixed this in the UCS Firmware version 2.0.1(t).
“After enabling Hyper-V in Windows 2008 R2 SP1 then rebooting, the server no longer shows a black KVM screen and a failure of windows startup and login.”
