"Windows To Go Creator to create portable Windows 10/8.1/8/7!
WinToUSB is the World’s First and Best Windows To Go Creator which allows you to install and run a fully-functional Windows operating system on an external hard drive or a USB flash drive. It is so easy and efficient, with just a few simple steps and a few minutes, you can create your first portable Windows 10/8/7 directly from an ISO, WIM, ESD, SWM, VHD, VHDX image file or a CD/DVD drive, or you can use it to clone an existing Windows 10/8/7 OS installation to a USB drive as portable Windows. WinToUSB also supports creating a Windows installation USB flash drive from a Windows installation ISO file, so you can install Windows from the USB flash drive easily."

And so do many other freeware solutions. Just google it. ;)
Holy shit, I'm still on 2.9.934. Should've enabled updates, probably...

Any options for windows server based? I'm not blowing 200 bucks to be able to do it. Nor spending 12+ hours either.

yes actually. I personally use Aomei which has a win2go creator (free). Anyway. Download or mount the ISO to your fav 2012+ ISO and slect the wim (under sources) after you click the W2G option in the program. you now have a portable windows server OS. I use this when I have to recover servers that backup using windows server backup but everything on the OS is hosed because they used baremetal. I can access the backups from the bootable drive using the server backup console and restore to the host disks.

Microsoft offers its own tool for this since Win 7... why would you get a 3rd party alternative?
because its only available in pro versions and not everyone runs pro. Also some people used non-certified drives, something the MS tool does not allow.

Any options for windows server based? I'm not blowing 200 bucks to be able to do it. Nor spending 12+ hours either.
I use Rufus to create quite a few windows server USB flash drives and thought I could make them UEFI compatible? Maybe I'm mistaken. +1 to what @Solaris17 is suggesting for that route as well.

But when converting ESD to WIM, that can simply be done in Windows CLI on 2012/Win8 and newer. Copy the ESD to a location, then modify the below code for the location of the source ESD and destination WIM. Works quite well.

Code:
dism /export-image /SourceImageFile:install.esd /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:install.wim /Compress:max /CheckIntegrity
What I primarily use is Easy2Boot, so I can keep multiple ISO's on a USB flash drive and also have UEFI secure boot compatibility when I need it without losing any of the data on the drive or needing to redo it. Then if I need one to be UEFI and UEFI Secure Boot compatible I select that image from a utility on the USB drive which masks the entire drive as that ISO. The ISO's need converted to imgPTN files (image within a contained partition), which is an easy process with the included utility. This does require a little more effort, but works extremely well and has been something I've relied on in the field for years.

I mix Microsoft and Linux OS ISO's on there... Win 7-10, Server 2008R2-2016, Ubuntu + Ubuntu Server, CentOS, Kali, utilities such as Hiren's, UBCD, Gandalf, Medicat, Memtest86+, etc. It uses a Linux to boot to, and can just run ISO's as-is, many systems will even boot to it in UEFI w/o secure mode. Some won't and if you need full UEFI Secure Boot compatibility it's a few extra steps that take a minute to accomplish.

Not sure how many here have used the extra features in Easy2Boot, but it works very well if you're at a level where you need multiple ISO's and UEFI secure boot options, and don't want a key ring full of individual ISO's on individual USB sticks...this is the way to go IMHO.

Yep. I've tried that one earlier today, and it worked fine with my Bootmgr-based images (exact same ones I tried to use w/ rufus). Got a 32GB WinToGo drive ready in about 1-1.5h

I agree with not spending $199 on WinToUSB to have Windows Server support: https://www.easyuefi.com/wintousb/comparison.html

Have you tried the most recent update of Rufus 3.1? It had been a while since I updated, but it appears that we may have the option now.

It not only let me select it for a Server 2012R2 ISO, but is letting me create it on one of my spare USB flash drives as we speak, no error messages or greyed out restrictions yet.

It's gonna be a while. I have to do some remote work for a client, walk the dogs, etc. But I'll report back.

Awesome... will give that a try @Kursah !

UPDATE!

It works!!!! It also boots fine and acts as an installed OS! noiceeys...

I put it on a USB HDD so I can use that HDD as a master and clone it and have a fresh install with some extras (anti-virus,HOSTS files, Rainmeter for monitoring, etc)

Take that hasleo!!!! :p bahaha

I'm inclined to move this to the networking sub forum due to some great info provided, any objections OP?

@Kursah @Solaris17 your thoughts?

Well while I think it would fit better under the General Software section, but I agree it should be moved. That or we could take some of the content from this thread and create a new Windows2Go Options titled thread under General Software.
