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:

  1. Insert a USB drive into the computer.

  2. Open CMD Prompt as administrator, and type:

    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7
    8
    9
    
    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
    
  3. Now just copy and paste the system image to the root of the USB drive. It should be bootable now.
