Installing Windows to a USB drive

This is NOT about putting the ISO on a thumbdrive, to be clear.  This is about installing to a USB drive.

 

Once upon a time I installed Windows 7 to a USB hard drive.  It involved some reach-around with a registry edit, which I forget as it was so long ago.

 

More recently, I tried to do the same with Windows 10, however it's not digging it.  Is anyone aware of whether it is still possible to do this, and if so, how?

Why does my USB drive doesn't appear on Ubuntu-VM on VirtualBox after installing the extension on Windows 10?

I've succesfully installed Ubuntu (16.04) on top of a VirtualBox (v: 5.2.22r) on top of these two seperate machines: MacBook - MacOS Mojave PC - Windows 10 In both machines, I'm able to see the USB drive once it's plugged-in as expected. No problem at all. But, from Ubuntu-VM user point-of-view, I was unable to see the USB drive from within the Ubuntu-VM once it's fired-on on both machines. So, I downloaded and installed the "Extension Pack". Then, from the VirtualBox settings, I've che...

Installing Ubuntu over Windows 10 on a drive with only a few gigs of free space?

I bought a cheap HP laptop just for the internet. Well, the hard drive is only about 30 gigs. Big problem, because so is Windows 10 with new updates. In fact there's not enough room on the drive to even update the operating system. I thought, well, Ubuntu is much smaller. But I read I need 25 free gigs of disk space to install. Windows took up all that. Is there a way to install over Windows or use an external drive, or USB? Incidentally, I detest Windows 10 and want to move to an all-free pl...
