Given that viBoot is included even with Reflect Free (until that was discontinued), I would’t expect you would have any restrictions here — at least not from a licensing standpoint. But running viBoot will require that the host Windows environment already have a supported hypervisor installed and running. Hyper-V can’t be started in portable mode, and I’m not sure VirtualBox can either. And the Reflect Portable interface even in Windows doesn’t have the same UI as regular installed Reflect that includes the “Boot” button under Existing Backups, nor the standalone viBoot application. So that all might limit or restrict your use of viBoot with Technicians Portable media from a practical standpoint.
But if the technical barriers aren’t an issue, viBoot is pretty much just mounting images (albeit as virtual disk files in another format) and leveraging ReDeploy-type technology to allow them to boot as VMs. Both of those capabilities are present in Reflect Portable already, so I don’t see why they would be restricted when used specifically for viBoot.
