Post Boot Windows from USB Flash Drive?
Wiki features chart has note saying, "Boot from USB ports is supported by BIOS, but Windows OS cannot be booted from USB."

Does that mean I can't boot from a flash drive to install Windows?
Or does that just mean I can't run Windows from a flash drive?

I installed Windows 10 from external DVD drive connected to USB. I suppose that booting from USB flash drive would work in the same way.

Thanks for the reply. I would hope it would boot Windows from a flash drive as it's pretty common these days and the way I've installed Windows and Linux on Fit-PCs, Intense PCs, and one uSRV machine. Guess I'll find out soon enough. A couple Airtops arrive next week. I'll post back after I verify.
