    This does look like it is worthwhile trying. I thought it was a hoax at first as my first Google search pointed me to articles zoning in on using older PCs (pages of them) for W8 To Go. Some people were touting legacy PC installs that worked but I was doubting every bit of it. Now having read the links I see that it is real but there are obviously limitations for older PCs.

    I can create W8 To Go from Windows 7. That is excellent. A product activation key is in the link that you provided. Nice.
    Tnx gerardwil.
