I am using Windows 10 Build 9926 and trying to create a 8.1 win2go disk. I am using Aomei to create it. I cannot get it to boot up. I have set my first boot priority using USB UEFI Hard Disk to boot into.

PNY 32 gig USB 2.0 Flash Drive.

What am I doing wrong?

Ok, I got it to boot but can not get it to load. All I get is the spinning circle. Let it run for about an hour with no results.

Were you perhaps working from this article here http://www.howtogeek.com/196817/how...-go-usb-drive-without-the-enterprise-edition/
If so, they do recommend using a USB 3.0 drive evening going so far as to suggest drives that have been certified by Microsoft as "Windows To Go Certified Drives"

That may be part of your problem although I could not say for sure.

Hi Trouble, My USB flash drive was the problem. It was a USB 2.0 with 32 gigs but not able to work for a bootable OS. I am going to get a USB 3.0 that is able to handle the job. It seems that there is only a handful of drives that can do the job.
