    Can this component be used after installation in other computers?

  • Hi there.

    I guess that if the storage device can be accessed from within setup, and as long as the computer supports boot on SD device, it should install OK.

    As per the 'usable on another computer' question, if the given computer is sd-boot capable, it should be usable (with minor tweaks as for devices detection and hardware compatibility between the two, or more, computers).

    As a general idea, any bootable storage device could potentially be used as destination drive. the portability issues will depend on hardware différences between computers on which the device will be used.

    A new functionnality in Windows 8 (not available on DPreview) will be portable Win8 on USB thumbdrive. I guess this is more likely to answer your needs.


    best regards, keep us posted.
