Se­lect the in­stal­la­tion disk, par­ti­tion and mode

PC Advisor - - HOW TO -

On the next screen, use the drop-down la­belled ‘Please se­lect the des­ti­na­tion disk’. At the top to pick the ex­ter­nal drive you want to in­stall Win­dows to. This will open up a bunch of op­tions be­low that. You’ll be asked to pick the sys­tem and boot par­ti­tions. If the ex­ter­nal drive isn’t split into mul­ti­ple par­ti­tions, you can eas­ily just pick the avail­able par­ti­tion for both sys­tem and boot.

Fi­nally, you’ll be pre­sented with In­stal­la­tion mode. If you can, pick Legacy mode; that’s the sim­plest way to go. Only try in­stalling Win­dows in VHD mode if you have is­sues in­stalling Legacy. You’ll also be given the op­tion to con­fig­ure the size of the Win­dows in­stal­la­tion on the drive; just go with the max­i­mum avail­able un­less you’re do­ing some­thing spe­cial. Click Next to get the in­stal­la­tion started. You’ll see a progress per­cent­age. The time it takes to in­stall will de­pend on a num­ber of fac­tors, such as the speed of the des­ti­na­tion drive. It could be 15 min­utes, or it could be a cou­ple of hours. You’ll be prompted when it’s done.
