Do the videos include grammar/spelling training ones? :whistle:

 

You had a "false start" ( and dencorso was faster than me in pointing you to the futility of your question), this can happen to everyone :) of course (not so casually they are FGA's), so you may want to start again (lets fake that this conversation never happened ;)) with the Standard Litany:

right now, you are unfortunately still in the "I'm ill, doctor. Help!" phase:

with the additional (possibly :unsure:) issue of the risk of slipping on a chocolate covered banana:

Namely, if your goal is to SINGLE boot an Operating System from a USB stick, using the (nice BTW) Easy2boot (which is an extremely complex solution to make it simpler to make MULTI booot USB devices) may not be the "right" choice.

 

Also, why (the heck) would you want to use a WINDOWS SERVER OS (BTW 2008R1, 2008R2 OR 2012) to act as Media Server and why do you think that you need a Media Server (at all) is needed for the ACTUAL FINAL GOAL you have? (and that though unspecified sounds more like "viewing remotely a bunch of videos and uploading new ones, etc." than anything else? :unsure:)

And why (the heck) would you want it to be on a USB stick?

 

Please try to describe what EXACTLY you are trying to achieve (ACTUAL FINAL GOAL) considering how the more details you provide the more it is likely that you will get useful suggestions/help.

Check out the "Windows To Go" feature that is available in the latest version of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. It allows you to install and run Windows from a portable USB drive. This feature should be what you're looking for.

Although there are methods to make Server 2012 work as a Windows To Go device, it is not intended nor supported. Such a thing is fine for personal use, but I wouldn't recommend you use the "Server 2012 to Go" hack in a business environment.

Just a few days ago I created a Windows 10 to Go drive using the freeware ISO2Disc. Just point to the Windows 10 ISO file and it would take about 15 minutes to complete burning. A USB 3.0 drive (with at least 15Gb) is recommended.
