install and run windows on/from external 3.0 usb

    General discussion

  • i installed windows 7 x64 ultimate on an external usb hard disk with the help of wintousb and now i can boot into windows from it. so far so good. my notebook has 1 usb 2.0 and 3 usb 3.0. the problem comes from the fact that even if it works, i can only boot from the 2.0 usb!!! when i try to boot from one of the 3 3.0 usb, after the black screen with windows logo, i get blue screen. now, my question is: is there a workaround (similar to the one for installer dvd) for my installed windows to boot from 3.0 usb, or i will remain on usb 2.0 until i will buy a new internal hdd?! (i forgot to mention that my internal hdd is broken)

    to install windows from usb 3.0 use this tutorial:
