I have uploaded a tutorial to Skydrive on how you can install and run Windows 8 using a stick or a USB attached disk. This is a good alternative to double booting or a setup in a virtual partition.

The document is a PDF that you can read in your browser (just click on it) if you have a PDF add-in or in Chrome which can do that by default. You can also download it.

LH, looks like the HTG version is very similar (had not seen that before) - although I like the BD ROM way better. And then it does not show the USB disk version. There are a few others on the web - some of which do not work or are missing steps.
