    Looks very interesting. Will it work on my 8 GB flash drive? What about a 16 GB partition on my 128 GB flash drive?

    Assuming you meant "To Go", site FAQ says "16GB min, 32GB recommended."

    I'm not sure regarding your other question.

    This thread is about various "Windows To Go" methods, including WiNToBootic.

    Yeah, but there are some other sites saying you can fit it in 8 GB after stripping out some drivers, etc.

    I have a 128 GB USB 3.0 flash drive. I want a dedicated partition for Windows 8.1 To Go and another for data. Will it still boot?

    I guess you'll have to try your 8 GB drive. If this program doesn't work, there are some other methods listed in the link in post #4.

    I'm not sure regarding your second question.

    @J_L: Method #3 in the link in post #4 looks more promising for what you're trying to do.

    After searching a bit, it looks like a pain either fitting it within 8 GB or partitioning my 128 GB drive. So I tried installing it directly on my 128 GB drive, but failure. Oh well.
