Step #9

The command is setting drive letter 'W', not 'S'.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The Assign letter=W was a misspelling. to add a drive letter of S the command should be assign letter=S.

Step 8 on page 46

There are steps for creating windows to go USB drive on page 46 and 47. But I found it is impossible to go through these steps. I may missed some important steps. After running from step 1 to 11, I only found one 350mb partition named S besides my local disks. How can the install.wim be moved to such a small partition? I think the writer missed steps to deal with the rest of space on USB drive. BTW, on step 8, it says format the partition with FAT32, but the command is for formatting it with NTFS.

Note from the Author or Editor:
There are a few typos here for Drive letter and ntfs vs. fat32. To boot the flash drive it should be formatted fat32 and the drive letter assignment of W should be listed as S. There is also no F:\ partition created (as listed later in the steps) for applying the image using dism. This will be corrected in a future release of the text.

Step 13

There is a missing subfolder on the specified path: c:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\Amd64\Servicing.

Note from the Author or Editor:
In the RTM version of Windows dism.exe appears to live in c:\windows\system32 and does not need to be copied to the directory first. In my installation the modified date was 7/26/12 and was able to run without any additional work

Windows to go options

The book states that Sleep mode AND hibernation are disabled when deploying windows to go. There is also a question and answer that are both wrong because they follow same thought process. In reality, only hibernation is disabled. Sleep mode is left enabled. There is actually a Group Policy for Windows to Go that can disable Sleep, but that is not default. Here is proof on Microsft Technet. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj592685.aspx

Note from the Author or Editor:
Thank you for pointing this out. The mention that the item was disabled was meant in the context of not turned on/used. This will be changed in a future release of the book.

3rd paragraph

On page 106, its states "Fortunately, with the rise of USB 3.0 and a maximum bandwidth of 5 GHz, bandwidth issues are not as serious as they once were." The correct bandwidth of USB 3.0 is 5 Gbps not 5 Gigahertz. So the statement should be corrected to "Fortunately, with the rise of USB 3.0 and a maximum bandwidth of 5 Gbps, bandwidth issues are not as serious as they once were.".

Note from the Author or Editor:
Please change sentence to read "Fortunately, with the rise of USB 3.0 and a maximum bandwidth of 5 Gbps"
