  1. I’ve had luck cloning an existing windows install to a usb external drive then being able to select that external drive in the bios boot menu. Works great with an ssd plugged into atleast a usb 3.0 or higher port. This install is interesting. Might give it a try.

  3. Thanks for this. This was way easier than the way i did this. I did this by using a spare computer and empty sata hdd. Running the first part of the installation where you select the drive you want to install and it starts copying the windows image to the drive. Once I got the your computer will restart in 10 seconds I turned off the computer, removed the drive and cloned it to a USB drive, and then booted off the usb and finished the setup.
    edit: I guess the way i did it, windows treated it like a normal installation and windows would feature update just fine

  4. MicroSD cards are plenty fast these days. I have an old Samsung Chromebook 3 running MXLinux on a 128g μsd and it is plenty fast for my use. BUT… Windows is a resource hog, so a external USB3 7200rpm hdd or ssd would be better.
