    Now that Windows 8 has started its rollout, has anyone created a Windows
    -to-Go USB stick and got it working on a Mac?

    Ive not yet put 8 on my workstation, so can't try it myself. Although I'm guessing it should work in theory, we may need to use a boot loader?

    as far as USB goes... this thread claims it works.... Personally I've only use W82GO to install to internal HD. Yes it Works!!!!

    Well I decided to download the trial from MSDN, and set it up on a spare SAS drive I have from my workstation. The only way I found of launching the WTG app was searching for it whilst in control panel - couldn't actually find it any other way.

    Anyway, installed it to a 40Gb HDD in a USB3.0 caddy and I can confirm it works on my 2012 MBP13... now just to sort out the drivers as I'm missing quite a few devices including wifi.
