comment Windows 8 reboot causes an infinite loop
@Jay I have been using Windows 8 Pro for about 2 weeks and have not had any problems with programs not working correctly.

comment Windows 8 reboot causes an infinite loop
The problem occurs on reboot every time the /f switch is not used, but it never occurs if the /f switch is used. shutdown /s works correctly without the /f switch. Only reboots are affected.

comment Windows 8 reboot causes an infinite loop
I already have a batch file called reboot.bat with those arguments. I was hoping to set the default arguments in the registry so that when programs (e.g. Windows Update) decide I need to reboot, the machine does not end up stuck in an infinite loop in case I forget to cancel the reboot and enter the command manually.

comment Install Windows XP on a removable hard drive
True, but the article does mention that "it works equally well with older versions of Windows". A Microsoft TechNet Library article says "Although ImageX cannot mount an image from a computer running any other operating system, it can capture and apply images for any version of Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 Professional."

comment Install Windows XP on a removable hard drive
I don't have an XP install disk anymore. I just remember that Windows 2000 and later can be installed from a wim file.

@Moab - XP can be installed from a wim file, if you have one. It may not be included on the installation disk though.
