I am using the following things 

Universal USB Installer 

Hard Disk partitioned in 2 drives (78 GB Each)

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Professional X64 Incl Update Jan 2016 - Freeware Sys 

 

ok , So i first used universal USB Installer to install into one of the drives and it didn't work as it was formatted in (FTA32 Format)

and then i formatted the drive into NTFS and then tried to install with the help of the above mentioned problem (Luckily it worked but there was an error )

 

Setup does not support configuration of or installation to disk connected through USB or IEEE 1394 port

 

What i am trying to do here is make a bootable hard drive which is use wherever i want to and while installing it shows only options of Main Operation System (Drive 0) and Drive 1 but i am not able to install this windows in Drive 1 (This drive is for HARD DISK 

 

In short i plan on using that external drive across multiple computers to boot from

 

 

Note : I am not willing to use Rufus as it makes our pendrive / harddisk write protected and we cannot write it anymore.

 

 

Thanks,

Knight_Rider

You mean use a single operating system on multiple computers?  If this is a consumer license it cannot be use on multiple computers.  The following can be found in Microsoft's Volume Licensing Brief...

 

The Windows client operating system license terms do not permit multiple users to access or otherwise use one licensed copy of the software simultaneously.
