Nanoserver should be run from USB media
At the moment you can create a vhd of the nanoserver and boot to it instead of booting your normal windows.
It would be great if we can just put the created nanoserver vhd on the usb-stick/jumpdrive and boot directly from it; without the need for other drives in the server or a working windows installed.

You can run it on a RAM-disk

I would add SD as a running system device in addition to USB.
