Hi all,

For the adventuresome. I have tried this with an external USB3 and SSD it works well. See this Youtube link for the method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvqgS2Y3GTA

Because my PC was older the only change I had to do in Rufus was to change the Partition Scheme from GPT to MBR . Just remember to press the "any Key" when you see the prompt to boot from the USB drive every time otherwise you will boot to Windows .
