Create A Bootable USB From CommandLine

less than 1 minute read

Description:

Follow these steps to create a bootable USB from Windows. Note this is similar to my post about A Multiboot USB, but mainly for on the fly single OS booting.

To Resolve:

1a. Insert a USB drive into the computer.

  1. Open CMD Prompt as administrator, and type:

diskpart
list disk #get your USB drive number, usually 1
select disk 1
clean
create part pri
select part pri
format fs=fat32 quick
active
exit

  1. Now just copy and paste the system image to the root of the USB drive. It should be bootable now.
