Building the Windows To Go Workspace
think of this as a private activation server just for the company, and it works a
little differently than the public activation servers run by Microsoft.
Instead of validating product keys supplied by the client, it activates anything
that communicates with it. The Windows 8 Enterprise clients simply make a
request to the KMS servers. Because the KMS server activates anything that
can talk to it, protecting it is very important, which is why it is always behind
firewalls, away from the public Internet. After all, the KMS server keeps track
of how many PCs are currently activated and the enterprise is legally obligated
to pay Microsoft a fee for each client.
Windows To Go workspaces use this type of activation because it is the only
feasible method of handling the activation of a Windows 8 install that could
potentially need to be reactivated every time it boots up. Because this
activation method is available only to enterprise customers with a volume license
agreement with Microsoft, Windows To Go is available only to the enterprise.
Building the Windows To Go Workspace
Assuming that you have purchased a USB 3.0 lash drive that is certified for
Windows To Go, follow these steps to create a Windows To Go workspace:
1. Open the Start Screen and type Windows To Go .
2. Change the search scope to settings by clicking Settings on the side, and
you should be able to run the Windows To Go utility.
3. After it loads, you see the Create a Windows To Go workspace screen
listing compatible drives that are plugged into your PC. Select your drive
and click Next, as shown in Figure 2-13.
4. Next, insert a Windows 8 Enterprise DVD into an optical drive or mount
a Windows 8 Enterprise ISO file by double-clicking it.
5. In the Create a Windows To Go Workspace utility, click Add Search
Location and select the drive with the Windows 8 Enterprise files.
6. When the utility finds the files, select the name and click Next.
7. Windows To Go supports BitLocker drive encryption, so the contents of
the USB device are encrypted. This is a good idea considering how easy
it is to lose a small USB lash drive. Check the box and enter a password
if you are interested in the feature; otherwise, just click Skip.
8. Finally, click Create and the USB lash drive is reformatted and has
Windows 8 Enterprise installed on it.
