    If you're able to install it onto a USB drive, I don't see why not. But, Win 10 refuses to install onto an external USB drive, so I wouldn't know. If it didn't, it may be because of the potential to encounter completely different hardware with each boot (if that's indeed the primary reason why 10 won't do it).

    So about a month ago I built a small PC with a micro-ATX board to use as a media PC for my TV. It has a built-in HDMI output, which was working fine last week, but yesterday when I tried it, it didn't work anymore, and now I'm using a DVI to HDMI adapter to keep it connected to the TV. Anyone have any ideas what would stop the HDMI output from working so soon after starting to be used?

    Try a different cable, if not that, then the port may be damaged or broken. You'll need to look where it's connected to the board

    It could also be an update that borked the port. I have an irregular issue with one of my video cards that was caused by an update to Windows.
