Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but found Windows 8 Enterprise Preview on the Microsoft Volume Licensing Site.
This version does have the 'Windows To Go' feature enabled unlike other versions of previews.
It's also on Technet along with the horrific looking Office 2013 Preview which was unveiled yesterday.
Is this a proper release or a preview please?
Still build 8400.
Two GPO settings you maybe interested in:
Computer configuration -> Admin templates -> Windows Components -> Credential User Interface
Do not display the password reveal button
Computer configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Security Options
Accounts: Block Microsoft accounts

I thought final release was September/October 2012?
Not managed to test windows to go yet properly.
We've tried a few USB sticks but it appears it requires a 'fixed' USB drive rather than 'removable' and 32gb min. Waiting for a suitable USB stick to arrive but one of the techs used an external 2.5 disk in a caddy.
It asks for a WIM file to write and creates two partitions, one 350mb and the rest fills the drive. On reboot it basically does the win8 setup. It can see the host computers local drives, but they cannot be accessed or mapped.
Lots of potential.
End user launch is 26th of October but it should be RTM in the next two weeks.I thought final release was September/October 2012?
Windows to go testing:
Yep, 'fixed' USB drive is a must.
A USB filter drive can be used to trick Windows 8 into thinking the 'removable' drive is 'fixed' so it passes the Windows-To-Go checks. My first test created the partitions fine, completed the WTG setup and made it bootable. On boot it popped up with the bitlocker password and after input started booting, but BSOD'd shortly afterwards.
Windows 8 Enterprise in availible to Technet Customers.... :-)
