How To: Install Windows 7 Or Windows 8 From USB Drive [Detailed
100% Working Guide]
Posted January 11, 2009 3:58 pm in: Vista Tweaks, Windows 7, Windows 7 Guides
Advertisements
This guide works 100% for Windows 7 and Windows 8 unlike most of the guides out there.
I have seen many sites/blogs that have Install Vista from USB guide but either with
incomplete steps or not working guide. I have also seen some guides that dont use
proper commands in this guide. After spending many hours I have come up with this
100% working guide to install Windows 7 and Windows 8 from USB flash drive.
I just did this method on one of my friends machine and installed Windows 7 and Windows
8 . The main advantage is that by using USB drive you will be able to install Windows 7 or
Windows 8 in just 15 minutes. You can also use this bootable USB drive on friends
computer who doesnt have a DVD optical drive.
The method is very simple and you can use without any hassles. Needless to say that your
motherboard should support USB Boot feature to make use of the bootable USB drive.
Requirements:
*USB Flash Drive (Minimum 4GB)
*Windows 7 or Windows 8 installation files.
Follow the below steps to create bootable Windows 7/Windows 8 USB drive using which
you can install Windows 7 or Windows 8 easily.
Procedure:
1. Plug-in your USB flash drive to USB port and move all the contents from USB drive to a
safe location on your system.
2. Open Command Prompt with admin rights. Use any of the below methods to open
Command Prompt with admin rights.
*Type cmd in Start menu search box and hit Ctrl+ Shift+ Enter.
Or
*Go to Start menu > All programs > Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and
select Run as administrator.
3. You need to know about the USB drive a little bit. Type in the following commands in
the command prompt:
First type DISKPART and hit enter to see the below message.

Pgina 2 de 146 http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/
Next type LIST DISK command and note down the Disk number (ex: Disk 1) of your USB
flash drive. In the below screenshot my Flash Drive Disk no is Disk 1.
4. Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is
Disk 1.If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step
to confirm it.
So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:
SELECT DISK 1
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few seconds)
ASSIGN
EXIT
Dont close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next
step. Just minimize it.
5. Next insert your Windows7/Windows 8 DVD into the optical drive and check the drive
letter of the DVD drive. In this guide I will assume that your DVD drive letter is D and
USB drive letter is H (open my computer to know about it).
6. Maximize the minimized Command Prompt in the 4th step.Type the following
command now:
D: CD BOOT and hit enter.Where D is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
7. Type another command given below to update the USB drive with BOOTMGR
compatible code.
BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H:

Tags: Bootable USB, Install Windows 7, USB
Where H is your USB drive letter. Once you enter the above command you will see the
below message.
8. Copy your Windows 7 or Windows 8 DVD contents to the USB flash drive.
9. Your USB drive is ready to boot and install Windows 7 or Windows 8. Only thing you
need to change the boot priority at the BIOS to USB from the HDD or CD ROM drive. I
wont explain it as its just the matter the changing the boot priority or enabling the USB
boot option in the BIOS.
Note: If you are not able to boot after following this guide means you havent set the
BIOS priority to USB. If you got any problem in following this guide feel free to ask
questions by leaving comment.
Update: If you find this guide difficult to follow, please use the easy-to-use guide
to create a bootable USB to install Windows 7 or Windows 8 using official tool.

I was doing fine up until step 5. I figured the whole point of booting from a USB drive was to
avoid having to burn a disc with the Windows 7 files on it, or install on a PC without a DVD

This worked an absolute treat. Nice write-up.
I did it on an XP box using Windows 7 mounted onto a virtual DVD drive.
I had to do the format using the windows tools as wasnt available as part of diskpart in XP.
All the rest worked as described.

@Darin
Firstly, let me apologise for the experience youre having.
The error means, your motherboard doesnt support USB booting. I have also mentioned
this in my guide. And there is no way to boot USB unless your motherboard support.
@Vikrant
No this guide doesnt for the users who like to install Windows 7 on USB.
@Omar
If you dont have a DVD drive/USB(4GB) then use my guide Installing Windows 7 without
using USB/DVD drive. There are two methods, direct and via VPC method. Please follow my
guides.
@All
I am glad that this guide helped you to install Windows 7.
Thanks.

Bootsect.exe problem!
I think that there is a problem occurs when you want to install 64 Bit Windows 7! from
your 32 Bit Vista.
Here is the message after typing BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H:
This version of F:boot\bootsect.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows youre
running. Check your computers system information to see whether you need a X86 (32-Bit)
or X64(64-Bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

What if I want to create a x64 boot in a x86 environment? I get this error message. This

First of all, sorry for the delay in reply.
@ PeterNLD
Of course, you can use as a replace to DVD.
@ Laker_Fan32
Sorry for the delay. I think you need to copy all the files once again. Just try it.
@ Siddarth
I didnt try that method. But I have another method which works on XP as well. Will post the
guide soon.
@ Nick
Make sure you copy all the Windows 7 files to USB correctly.

Basically, I havent tested this method on 64-bit machine. So, I cant find a solution for you.

Only one minor issue if you are trying to create a W7 64-bit bootable drive on a 32 bit install
of Vista. In that case youll have to run the bootsect command from a 32-bit W7 DVD,
because the version on the 64-bit DVD will not run on a 32-bit OS.

Um, couldnt you have skipped step 5 and onwards? You just need to do the diskpart and
then copy contents of the CD to your USB, at least, thats what worked for me
Also, why are you formating to NTFS instead of FAT32?
Just wondering..

Sorry for the delay in replay.
@Man
This method works fine on Vista and Windows 7 only. I will be writing a guide for XP users in
a week. Stay tuned!
@Nick1
I wrote this guide to make the installation faster. In my personal experience Windows 7 took
just 15 minutes to get installed from USB compared to 35 minutes DVD method. Of course,
you can skip the step 5 if you can mount the image and copy the files.
@Andy
Sorry, I am not planning on that. But, it should be easier if you install Linux over Windows
7.
@Bob Sauve
Follow the same procedure. This method works on both Vista and Windows 7.
@Tyson
Wait for few days to get a detailed guide.
@Fzang
NTFS is faster than FAT.

For everyone having issues with diskpart in XP not seeing the USB stick, its because thats
an XP issue. The way XP and Vista handles USB drives, Vista sees them in Diskpart but XP
tends not to. There is a reg hack to fix it but I havent bothered to search for it.

Funny thing I noticed on Win7, when you EXIT the DiskPart and try to continue in Command
Prompt, while copying the bootsector to device, you may face an error Access Denied for
no priviledge in copying the bootsector to device.

installed anyway. I was pretty sure that it wouldnt work but I tried it and presto! It went
through the three reboots and installed perfectly. Has anyone else had this happen?

I find it funny that you say this is a 100% working guide but you dont mention that fact
that the Win 7/Vista USB boot drive needs to be created on computer running Windows 7 or
Vista. That should really be added to the Requirements section so you can call your guide
100% working. I seen a few comments from people saying it doesnt work because theyre
trying to make the boot drive from within XP.

To those, like me, that are (were) running Vista 32-bit and wanting 7 64-bit:

Hello, TweakWindows, and thanks, but I know what you mentioned about Vista, which I
AM using, I used a Sandisk 8GB and waited half an hour for the formatting process (hardly a
few seconds, but I wasnt surprised, and Id like to know how you get that on a 4GB flash
drive), I followed each of your steps in order twice while running an Administrator command
session, with positive feedback after each command was completed, and then I reordered
my BIOS boot priority (which had the same effect as hitting F12, other than F12 not
requiring another BIOS session to boot normally from your hard disk again). Looks like I did
everything right, and STILL I cant boot from a flash drive. I see most others have not had
that problem, but I made sure that I did what you said, with the right stuff, and still I
crashed with this error: BOOTMGR NOT PRESENT (or MISSING, something similar), and
that was after the BOOTMGR.EXE /NT60 command completed with success! I know
nothing of boot managers, much less repairing them, but I sure would appreciate a clue
(wherever it is)! I am close to hopelessly frustrated on this, even if this is the best tutorial
Ive seen so far, and if I cant resolve it here I will probably give up please help!

Ohdid I misunderstand that this is for making use of an image file? Is that not how Vista is
normally distributed, on a normal DVD? I am trying to install a modified version of Vista,
distributed by .iso, for two very good reasons: 1) Im on a bloatware diet, and 2) Im trying
to replace what I already paid for, after it got wiped (yeah, the whole freakn disk), and if
you Microsoft pirate hunters have a problem with that, then you can go impale yourselves
on your own swords! To any who would clue me in on what else may be needed besides the
image file (after following the above steps), or explain any non-troll reasons why this
method would not work with what I am trying to do, Id be most grateful.

Excellent tutorial, thanks!
If the flash drive has been previously used for as a bootable installer for a Linux distro then
the MBR needs to be reset, which can be done by modifying the Step 7 command to:
bootsect /nt60 H: /force /mbr
This will remove the Master Boot Record so Windows boot loader will kick in, instead of
Linux (GRUB).

For the ones that do not want to burn a blank DVD, you can mount the .iso file you

I got the install to run on the X200 using the USB, but I had to deal with a cannot create or
locate system partition error. That is an error linked to the usage of USB media and not
DVD.
If the USB is first in the BIOS, then the Custom upgrade option simply fails to find the HDD
where to create the system partition (100MB) I initially wanted a dual-boot of my Lenovo-
Vista, but I had to completely format the drive finally. Once blank, I could put it first in the
BIOS (since not bootable yet) and the system booted on the USB.
From that tricky point, it went smoothly. This guide is great.

Thanks for the guide. Perhaps you should update it with Shoms comment(#137). I was
using a usb stick that formerly had the linux grub loader on it. I was getting the missing
bootmgr error message until I used the /force /mbr option like Shom suggested.
Also, formatting is very slow I would add the QUICK option on the format command.
Although in Windows 7, I can just right click on my usb drive letter in my computer & quick
format it using NTFS bypassing DISKPART altogether.

Troubles I can boot from the USB stick into the Windows setup 7 fine. However, every
time the computer restarts, it restarts the setup.
So During the next restart I pulled the USB stick out and Windows started. The setup
picked up where it left off. The green bar wasnt moving at all though.
So I ran it all again I rebooted (with the USB stick plugged in), reformatted the destination
drive, re-ran the full setup, pulled the stick out for the first restart You know that black
screen where you can choose safe mode or regular mode? There are 2 Windows 7 options
there and every time I repeat the above, it adds another Windows 7 option.
What am I missing??

Thanks the format took ages on my 16gb cruzer
Also, my source was an ISO of the x64 RTM build. First try, I mounted this with MagicISO
and copied files with explorer had a problem with a missing file boot\bcd, so I started
again, but used 7-zip to extract the iso, and am now through with the install, which flew by
in just 20 or so minutes.
I think that copying files from the magiciso mounted iso was not the ideal way to go 7-zip
seems to have done the trick for me.

GUYS GUYS GUYS!!!!!!!
Go to device manager and go to properties and select policies, and select the better
Performance the bottom one for you to use the BOOTSEC.EXE part.
You might have to reboot.
I also suggest you use KILL U3 utility for san disk.

FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few seconds)
This is bad . Very bad.
It doesnt take few seconds.
It does take very many seconds.
Formatting quick is much faster and enough (I already did to this stick two times before) .
Please correct.

For those of having the 32/64 bit problem, just follow the beginning of the guide and after
you finish formating, copy & paste (drag and drop) the contents of the dvd (which you can
virtually mount on your hdd) onto the usb stick. it will be bootable and will work!

XP users follow this method:
Just for completion
1. First create your bartpe files using UBCD4WIN
2. after you have done that create your usb flashdrive using UBUSB
point to the files of your bartpe
be sure you check create cd image and let de default Z in place
check if you have selected the right drive
press go
after finished you have a bootable usb drive which is able to get in a xp environment.
3. Now copy the content of your win XP CD to a folder XPCD on the flash drive (x:\xpcd)
4. after copying boot the drive in the PC and select Compatibility Mode (Memory Mapped)
5. after finished you select the commandline and type
X:\XPCD\i386\Winnt32.exe /syspart:C: /tempdrive:C: /makelocalsource
6. first enter the xpkey and name of the computer and region then click next
7. Now youre asked if you want to upgrade to the XP NTFS filesysten, select NO for this
then hit Next.
8. Itll now see Copying installation files and the familiar green progress bar. Shortly after
Copying Installation Files is complete, setup will close without notice or any type of
prompt, this is normal.
9. remove the flash drive and Reboot your computer and setup will continue from the hard
drive where you can choose to install XP or do a repair install if XP is already installed.

196. admin

@ mugurelu
Since you are going to create a bootable drive, you need to format the drive completely. So,
you cant use just one partition. And about external drive, it should work fine (I have tested
on flash drives only).

Posted October 19, 2009 at 4:30 pm | Permalink
@ Jackson
You should be able to format it with FAT 32 or NTFS.
198. ceeque
Posted October 20, 2009 at 3:12 am | Permalink
simply does not work. One of the main reasons being is you have typed out the commands
in the text differently to what you have input into the command screen, you have ommitted
the spaces in your text yet placed spaces in the command prompt, and even after correcting
those errors all you get is:bootsect.exe is not recognised as an internal or external
command, operable program or batch file
Yet another waste of yours and my time

If you have XP do this instead of diskpart:
1) Right click on the USB drive and click format.
2) Run a quick format
3) Open up DOS box and type convert i: /fs:ntfs (Where I is your USB drive latter)
4) After that goto step 5 on this list
Works great in XP

For those having problems with access is denied during the bootsect command, be sure to

administrator or using /runas was sufficient, but I guess things are different in
Vista/Windows 7.

Pgina 28 de 146 http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/
(coz there were nothing,not disk 1,2,3-i just select disk 1-don`t ask me why,coz i don`t
know for myself,coz i am stupid!!!)
- select disk 1
- clean
After i wrote clean,I discconect usb cable,coz I afraid-what does clean means!!??
For god sake-i have all informations from last 6 years on my external hard disk
Now,my WD doesn`t work,everything is ok in drive manager,when i conecct usb cable
there is the external usb hard drive showed up on the Safely Remove Hardware list right
down,but I can not enter into the disk-inside and I am so affraid and desperate and don`t
know what to do
How you can see,I am bigginer,but please tell me what is the best solution for me to do now
and to don`t lose my data on WD (if i already didn`t lost
Please,please help-with days I don`t know what to do.
My e-mail is via_makedonia yahoo dot com please write me there.
What I have tried:
coneccting my WD with 3 dieferent cables-usb and firewire in dieferent ports.
installing drivers from wd site
When I check Device Manager it shows that the device is installed and working properly but
it will not show in my computer and I cant access it.
before the problem,my HDD appeard as drive H:
I wouldnt be half as frustrated if it hadnt been working properly before this.Plus-ALL data is
on my HDD,and I don`t even know if it is still there
I do it this:
2 Step Solution for XP users:
Part 1:
Go to
Control panel -> Performance and Maintenance (cannot be in classic view to see this link) -
> Administrator Tools -> Services -> Universal Plug and Play
If Universal Plug and Play is set to manual switch to automatic.
Part 2
Double Click Safely Remove icon on the bottom right-> Select device->click Properties ->
click Volumes -> click Populate -> hit OK -> if nothing shows it may need to be formatted
Also i was in DISK MANAGEMENT,but except formating disk,I don`t see solution
And formating will erase all data on the disk,isn`t it?! (if i have it,of course).
again nothing

needless to say this little fix has been a God sent.. Works like a champ.. the only think that
didnt work was
Format fs=ntfs I formated it the old fashed way..
and in step 6. D:CD Boot I had to do CD/Boot amazing how that little / makes all the

I am not sure if this is posted but for everyone that has the CD as an ISO file you can use
MagicISO to mount the ISO file to a virtual drive so that the system sees it as a CD/DVD.
then just use that drive letter in place of the CD/DVD drive letter in the guide. Worked like a
charm for me.

3 and 4. This is because XPs DiskPart Tool does not support The NTFS Formatting for USB
flash disks. Thank you for a great guide. I am working on a tool which does it all for you,
called 7toUSB.

I have a question for you, I have done this guide
over and over again different ways on different operating
systems and I cant get it to work, I am wanting to install
windows 7 iso on my desktop pc which is an xp machine. I changed the bios boot sequence
so it detects the usb first actually I made them all usb and it still gos straight through the
boot sequence and right into the xp bootup screen. I dont know what to do please help.
thank you, david

It seems your PC doesnt support USB booting, or your Windows 7 ISO is not bootable.

Could not map drive partitions to the associate volume device object: Access is denied.
This happened right after bootsect.exe/nt60 E:
(The usb key is considered by the comp as drive E)
I tried the so-called easier guide link, it couldnt even find an iso file in the windows 7 files.
(Its on a cd)
And i know there is nothing wrong with the windows 7 cd, i just used it last night to install it
on my uncles comp, which is where ive been trying to go through this guide)

so guys, for Windows 7 x64 you need the folder /boot from a 32 bit dvd instalation if you
want to prepare the usb drive on a 32bit PC (i used from the DVD of RC win 7 a had from
may 2009)
it worked fine, i tried first with an Ultimate version x64

use this guide only have the .iso file and not the dvd.

This is stupid, I didnt have to do all this crap, all I did was format my 4GB flash drive in fat
32 format, copy the contents if the Windows 7 DVD contents to the USB flash drive. And
then set the bios to boot from flash. all done with my mouse, no diskpart or cmd prompt.

Posted January 29, 2010 at 11:00 am | Permalink
@khang, if you only have the .iso file of windows 7 and not the dvd, (install power iso trial-
free online), nxt double click .iso image and it appears in power iso, in toolbar of power iso
click on mount select 1 drive(in drop out menu) follow a couple of prompts and its
mounted.nxtgo to my computer and you will see a virtual drive(DVD Drive) their with
the windows 7 in it, right click on it and explore(or open in new window) all the files are
their and you can now copy them to your pen drive.
a much easier and quicker way is (assuming you have power iso installed) is simply right
click on .iso image and mount from their, my computer, explore or opencopy files//simple
really,
296. maseo

@ patryk
if you didnt get as far as format then you should be able to recover files, im assuming your
disc drive has dissapeared from my computer?? if so, go to start menu>>type partition in
search bar (dont hit enter) clcik on the create and format partitions file>>a box will appear
and take a minute or 2 to load in all your partitions..once loaded you should see your
missing partition/driveif so right click on it..select change drive letter and paths,>>select
add from the nxt pop up box>>type a letter in, make sure the letter is not assigned to any
other resources (egzampletype letter R ) once you put the letter in, just click ok, your
partition should be back as normal now in my computer.

You should really give the _original author_ credit, instead of pretending like you wrote this
guide yourself.
Just a couple of weeks after its posted here:
link removed
You turn around and post it here.
You can try to deny it, but its the _exact_ same steps in the _exact_ same order, on top of
using the _exact_ same commands, again, in the _exact_ same order.

How can you say that just because order of commands are same? You know, one cant
create a bootable disk by entering those commands in random order. So steps will be same
if you refer other sites too. I cant blame other sites for that right? You need to execute the
step 1 first and then 2.. You cant reverse it!

just because [...]? Its kinda cute how you ignored the other points. The order of the
commands is important, but they do _not_ have to be executed in that exact order.
Furthermore, Im even more convinced you have no idea what any of the commands posted
do as youre misleading users into thinking that bootsect doesnt work on XP installs or
vista installs with XP as the target. Its a matter of changing the /n60 argument to /nt52 for
it to use the master boot code thats compatible with NTLDR (rather than BOOTMGR, which
is what Vista/7 uses).
To quote you in case you decide to go deleting it:

You need to add > Type EXIT < To exit the diskpart after formatting. Like this:
5. Type EXIT to exit DISKPART
6. Maximize the minimized Command Prompt in the 4th step.Type the following command
now:
D: CD BOOT and hit enter.Where D is your DVD drive letter.
Otherwise very helpful indeed

What you meant to say was:
6. At the prompt, switch to your DVD drive. For example, if your DVD drive is drive D, type:
D:
then press Enter.
7. Type CD BOOT and press Enter, to see the message below.
(I would make typing CD BOOT a separate step.) Cheers, Ander

Im currently at the copying files to USB end stage. But for anyone who reads down here,
make sure to check that youve selected the right disk in stage 4, one way to do this is by
typing DETAIL DISK and hitting enter after the SELECT DISK 1 line, brings up a load of
details and a volume list at the bottom, with name, size etc, mine was Disk 4.
(Using a different guide I manage to format my D:, good thing Ive got a server backup.

I was a bit sceptical about this actually working. It just seemed too good to be true, this

Like mentioned earlier its not possible to run bootsect from 32-bit windows on a 64-bit

Also, I had to run cmd as admin or else bootsect would complain about something I cant

You rock man! Thanks for this guide. Ive spent two whole days trying to repair my corrupt
Windows 7 installation on my Netbook, which has been a challenge as it has no optical
drive, so having a bootable Flash Drive was the perfect answer. Thanks again!
A few tips to others:
- The format of the USB drive takes a while, just be patient (I used the full format, not
quick, just to be sure!)
- If youre getting an Access Denied error when trying to map partitions, its because you
didnt run the command prompt as Administrator. Right click on the Command Prompt
program as select Run as Administrator
- When setup has completed, dont forget to set your boot priority back to the Hard Drive in
the BIOS!

Worked for me. Thanks to all of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you are using Windows XP to create your bootable USB, these steps worked for me. I just
omitted steps 1-5
Download and install http://i.thepcspy.com/USB_Boot.zip
Archive Password: pasta
Open and find your USB drive and format using NTFS
6. Now open another command window and type following command
J: (Drive letter of Windows 7 iso mounted with demon tool or ultraiso)
CD boot
bootsect /nt60 Y: (Y is drive latter of your USB drive )
Update BOOTMGR for USB Pen Drive
7. Now copy all files from drive where you have mount Windows 7 iso
8. Now reboot your computer and press F9 to get your BIOS screen and select USB drive as
your boot drive.
9. If every thing goes fine, Your Windows 7 Installation should start from your USB drive

Once you invoke Command Prompt like run as Administrator there was nothing like

Pro Tip:
When formatting the USB Stick, use the following:
format fs=ntfs quick
Takes about 30 seconds to format the drive. Incredibly handy if your USB stick is 8GB+ like
all of mine are. I dont want to wait 20 minutes for it to format

Pgina 55 de 146 http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/
I think the guide will also work for XP USB boot.
We have to use Vistas bootsect.exe which can reinstall XPs bootsector.
To (re)install an NTLDR or BOOTMGR bootsector you will need Bootsect.exe.
Copy it from a Vista DVD if you want to include it on the USB root directory.
bootsect.exe /nt52 H:
I would suggest try to format the USB key as FAT & then install the boot manager followed b
dumping of the XP CD to start testing.
Start with FAT/FAT32/NTFS to see which one works.
If NTFS on key works, it will also mean a super fast Windows install over USB 2.0.
Catch: ensure to use correct bootsect.exe for x86 & x64 OS.

When I followed this method, I manage to get the OS to boot from the USB, but then that
creates another problem. Vista confuses itself by reading the USB as another hard drive.
The error Windows is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for
installation. shows up in the Disk Partition page. My computer only has one hard drive so it
must be the USB causing the problem. Can anyone tell me how to get around this problem?

Pressed F2 on boot to get into setup, Acer Aspire will see the USB and show it by name, I
just moved it to the top of the Boot list using F6 saved changes and rebooted. Once W7 has
installed you have to go back into setup (F2) to change the boot sequence back to the HDD.
Just finished updating. If only life was this simples lol!

Well, it worked as advertised (Windows7), but only after going to Control Panel User
Account Control Settings and specifying Never notify. Before taking this step, the Bootsect
command failed with Access denied.
Now, on to setting up BartPE on this bootable 4GB USB drive

Nice one works a treat.
Additional info:
1.) during the diskpart in command prompt, users need to cancel or ignore any prompts by
windows to automatically format the drive.
2.) If you get the message from command prompt when coppying the boot info that the
device is currently locked, its probably either your antivirus trying to scan the empty drive,
or its windows that has automatically opened the drive contents in a window. Stopping the
antivirus or any open windows other than commandprompt associated with the USB or
external drive and trying again from where it said device locked works.
Thanks for a brilliant post. Saved me hours. Im setting up a PC with old DVD drives and

Great post..!! Followed all the instructions step by step and works like a charm..!!
The only tip is that this wont work for xp since in xp, the MS DOS disk manager does not
show usb disks. it will only show the HDD as disk 0. There is no disk 1. But when i tried with
vista, then it shows usb as disk 1 and all the steps worked easily.

Posted November 15, 2010 at 12:06 am | Permalink
Right, it looks good, but Ive yet to try it, for a few reasons:
1. How do you reverse the process for the USB, in case I want to use it as normal again
after Ive booted up my PC with it? Can it be done? How? Maybe it works anyway? I dont
want to ruin a good 16GB USB for it otherwise.
2. Ive got my Win7 on an .ISO on my HDD, and I COULD install it using e.g DaemonTools
or some such directly, but there are things that are better with a booted installation, thus I
want to go with that option. But, my question is this, can I do as with the CD/DVD drive
with a virtual drive, where I mount the Win7 .ISO and do Step 6 with the mounted drive?
Many thanks in advance!

Also, I think FAT32 would work ok; speed difference would be insignificant.
And I think the BOOTSECT.EXE part is redundant because DISKPART prolly already did that.
Thats why some ppl have got it to work when they left out that step.
Anyway, the main thing is it works. You just need to shout in caps that it DOESNT WORK IN
XP. Maybe the morons would see it then.

Hi, Ive tried to install win 7 from usb using wintoflash but faild due to ther error that I need
cd/dvd drivers. The solution was removing the usb and reinserting it then I cancelled the
setup and went to repair options. I then chose command prompt. After reinserting the usb
you will have 3 discs. Mine were X: which was the boot disc (supposedly the usb but it
wasnt) c: (the usb after inserting it again) and d: (the cd-rom). On the command prompt I
had to navigate to X:\windows. (type: cd X:\windows without quotes) then type:
bootsect /nt60 C: (this loads the bootmgr on the usb. the usb in my case was C: so you
have to find yours) after that just restart and the setup will continue without errors. best of
luck

I have used this method several times and it works GREAT. Instruction are very easy to
follow.
For those having trouble with not being able to copy the contents of the DVD to the thumb
drive b/c you dont have a DVD drive. I would suggest to either perform these steps on a PC
that has a drive or if you have a iso or a rar image of a DVD you can use magiciso (free) to
create a virtual CD ROM drive and then mount the image to a virtual Drive.
Works GREAT.. I used this for Vista and Windows 7 32 and 64 bit.
If you cant figure it out READ the instructions Carefully or take your USB thumb drive and
DVD to a local computer shop and have them do it for you. Make sure you give them this
sites URL b/c it works just fine. Quick and Easy.
Thanks

Thank you! I keep this page on my favorites and use it often.
This worked without issues.
Those having problems are either using the wrong drive letter, have a syntax error, or dont
have the USB as the first boot device on the BIOS.
Another thing to consider is that not all boards allow booting from a USB drive especially
older one.
Dont drive yourself crazy if the option is there, your computer is somewhat old, and it
doesnt work. Chances are booting from USB is not supported.
Good luck.

I was installing Windows XP on old laptop, but installation process aborted in the midway
giving me some error, while I was using similar guide to install XP. So, I have removed HDD
(2.5 with IDE interface) and formatted it on using another laptop which is running on
Windows 7 (I used IDE to USB adapter to connect it). Thus, now when HDD is clean and I
try to boot up from USB (setting it in BIOS to boot up from USB), it gives me only blinking
cursor and it does not go anywhere. If I remove USB and tries to boot up from HDD it gives:
BOOTMGR is missing
Press ctrl+alt+del to reboot
As I remember on Win 98 there was copy SYS command to start command prompt. Any
alternative on XP? I simply need to get command prompt started and than Ill take it from
there to install XP.

meaning you are running 32 bit windows and trying to execute a 64 bit bootsect.exe

but.. works 100% every time. I installed win7 on my own laptop, my pc, one work pc, and
now using it on my girlfriends laptop. thanks a lot for the simple guide, everyone saying it
doesnt work, either arent following the steps, or should check to see that they arent trying

Hi all!
Here are some tips.
1. Can only be created from a computer running Windows 7 or Vista
2. You can only create a drive that is the same type as the os your using. i.e. 64bit drives
cannot be made on 32bit installed!
3. Do not install to flash/pen/usb drive, install to hard drive!
4. Make sure you have backed up all your data since this is clean install.
5. Format and install speeds vary depending on your flash drive and its capacity. i.e. A 4GB
drive will be quicker at formatting than a 8GB model.
Hope this helped!
@marmar
Download a program that can create .iso files or if you have the .iso on another drive simply
mount with Virtual Clone Drive or Daemon Tools (Virtual Clone Drive is easier, once you
have got the .iso with all the files in mount and use the virtual disk drive letter in the cmd
and it should be easy!
Thanks,

to make sure the physical hard drive disk didnt have any scratches on it (it was pretty

Hello,
Some motherboards, (like mine,) DO support booting from USB, but the bis lists USB
devices as Hard Disks instead of Removable. So in order to get it to boot from USB you
must change the hard disk boot order. So when you are installing windows 7 it comes to a
point where it needs to reboot to finish the installation. But when it reboots it begins the
install sequence all over again. This is because it booted from the USB again.
FIX:
-just watch and wait for the reboot, then hold del or whatever key gets you to your bios on
your system. then switch the hard disk boot order back to device #1 being the partition
where you chose to install windows.
voila! your install will continue as normal.
BTW my motherboard is ASUS P5N-D
Also, this guide is totally awesome works perfectly, thank you.

If you have access denied error, run cmd in run as adminstrator mode.

Works just as described. Thanks very much, saved my bacon after realizing Mom-in-Laws

To Al: had same error. Make sure you are running CMD as Admin. If it doesnt prompt you
for permission on launch, you didnt launch it right. Use the right-click run as
administrator option.

Hi Al
I had the same look at #577 and change to never notify
BUT I had to reboot after I changed to never notify before it worked.
After reboot you can go step 6 by open the cmd again.

to avoid ACCESS DENIED errors, run cmd from system 32 folder Run As Administrator

For those having issues with not having a dvd to copy the files from. Use a virtual drive,
there are a few good free programs that will mount iso images into a virtual dvd drive.
For people having issues with the bootsect.exe step, you will need to make sure you are
using a 64bit OS to create a 64bit usb installer. I ran into this myself using 32bit vista on
one of my laptops. I had to use my 64bit vista laptop to create a 64bit windows 7 usb
isntaller for my netbook.
And remember to run Command Prompt as admin, if you run into issues with cmd prompt
dropping admin privileges after exiting diskpart, you may be having an issue with the UAC.
Just open a new cmd prompt as admin (easiest fix).
Great guide btw. Allowed me to format and reinstall 7 (using the DVD provided by the
manufacturer) on a netbook without using an external dvd drive which I did not have the
money to buy.

@Alex
Sorry, forgot to add this to my previous comment.
There are a few options for restoring the memory card to being usable in your phone.
Option 1: Delete the partition and create a new fat32 partition (Ive noticed a lot of phones
dont recognize ntfs easily, some do). This is the easiest option
Option 2: This is for advanced pc users.. You can download and burn off a Live version of
linux that will boot from disc and provide a full linux environment and use a disk partitioning
program like gparted or Disk Utility
I recommend option 1, worked for a co-worker that had run into the same issue.

Hi! I have been using this Howto coz its really working. One observation though, after I
converted the usb as a bootable win7 installer, I couldnt use it as file storage anymore. This
happend to a brand new usb as well as my good old usb that has write protect switch.
Everytime I try to store files on an already bootable usb, its as if the the system releases
the usb (like as if I ejected it) then after a few seconds, the system detects it again that its
there and will offer for a scan for error. If I choose to scan, it wont push through and re-
offers it again and again.
Btw, I cant format nor do anything to the usbs partition.

typed in CLEAN. its tells me VIRTUAL DISK SERVICE ERROR: there is no media on the
device. i didnt think anything of it because the usb didnt have anything on it to begin with.
so I typed in Creat Partition Primary then tells me No usable free extent could be found. it
may be that there is insufficent free space to creat a partition at the specified size and
offset.
I dont know what that means. my usb is 4GB, is that too small? am I doing it wrong?

Hey Bek. Normally the DISK # would be the last on the list. Before you start, unplug any
other external device from your system. And note if you have more than one internal hard
drive. So if you have 2 internal drives and the one usb drive (the one you want to load the
boot on), then the list would be:
Disk 0 (1st internal)
Disk 1 (2nd intermal)
Disk 2 (external)
Also the Size column, in your case should be a little under 4 gig. Will show something like
3242 MB.
Hope that helps

Hi. Ive read all the posts hoping to solve my issue but no luck. I hope someone has the
answer
I am trying to make my 1TB eGo USB 2.0 Desktop Hard Drive bootable. I am running Win 7.
The bios hardware supports booting from a USB drive, and I am able to select the USB drive
from the boot menu. But when I choose the USB drive, I get:
A disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
I am able to read/write from the USB drive normally via Win 7 with no problems. The USB
drive is formatted NTFS and could this matter my computer is 64 bit and the USB drive is
formatted with whatever you get when you select NTFS would that be 64 bit in my case?
Lastly, when I try the Windows 7 USB Tool, I cant even get past selecting an ISO file it
says mine are invalid.
Is there any help for me??

Not sue if this has been mentioned before, if so, please delete my post.
First of many thanks for this great guide!
Created a Bootable pen drive with it and pluged it in only to get the message: BootMGR file
is missig
Solution in my case:
Removable device Boot in Bios was enabled, but the Bios maped the Pen as a harddrive, so
even if i manually chose: Boot from removable device BIOS didnt find any and jumped to
boot from Harddisk where it found no BootMGR.
When inspecting bootsequence in BIOS i could expand the entry Harddrive the expanded
entry showed the built in harddrive as first device and the pen as second.
Well i switched the pen to first device and it worked.
Sry for this long explanation, i hope it can help.

4. Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is
Disk 1.If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step to
confirm it.
So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:
SELECT DISK 1
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK
(Format process may take few min)
EXIT
u will be back to c:
then again typeyour drive name D: (DVD Drive name)
AND SAME AS GIVEN THERE
D: CD BOOT
D:BOOT>BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H:

To all those receiving disk read error
I had this problem and strangely evaded it by simply having a second USB stick in the
computer at boot up.
It was a Ubuntu USB boot that I had made but strangely somehow it managed to prompt
the Windows 7 Install USB to boot.
Makes no sense at all but it worked!
Good luck

If you want a easy way (no need using command prompt, also avoid the problem of not

for installing windows 7, download and use the tool from here. You can find the instructions

For some of you who cannot get the USB to recognize or the USB to boot, chances are your

Hi,
Great doc thanks.
Ive done this now 4 times but I get stuck at the end.
The whole process works as described, and I *can* boot from the external USB disk.
Interestingly, the bios quickly flashes that there is no boot device but then it does boot
from the external USB disk and runs the Win7 installer.
Howeverwhen I try to install Win7 (clean install) and I list the 2 partitions (1st one is the
main C: Drive and the second listed in the USB partition [Disk 1 Partition 1]) I get the
message:
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Setup does not support configuration of or
installation to disks connected through a USB or IEEE 1394 port.
Any hints?

@EVERYONE WHO HAS HAD THE BOOT MGR MISSING ERROR
SOMEONE ELSE HAS ALREADY MENTIONED THIS, BUT IT WAS RIGHT SMACK IN THE
MIDDLE AND UNNOTICEABLE. IF YOU ARE HAVING THIS ERROR CHANCES ARE THAT ON
YOUR USB FLASHDRIVE OR HARDDRIVE THE NECESSARY FILES ARE SAVED IN A FOLDER
PROBABLY CALLED CD-ROM. YOU MUST EXTRACT THE FILES FROM THAT FOLDER AND
MAKE SURE THEY ARE AT THE ROOT OF YOUR FLASHDRIVE/HARDDRIVE INSTEAD OF
BEING TRAPPED IN SOME ADDITIONAL FOLDER.
HOPE THIS HELPS!!

I was able to do all the steps on a 4 gb flash drive, but i ran out of space so I purchased an
8 gb. When I get to step 4 creating the partition I get the following error: there is
insufficient free space to create a partition at the specified size and off set. Specify different
size and offset values or dont specify either to create the maximum size partition.
I have tried several times with same error. As I noted above the first time on the smaller
flash drive it worked fine. Any idea?

@Themba & hamza: Be sure to run the cdm (or command prompt) as administrator. Step 2.
Thanx for the method But be sure not to do the clean action on just a partition of your
drive. Clean works for the whole disk (even if you selected just a volume/partition). Just lost
350Gb of files because of that -_-
But thanx anyway

there are a bunch of idiots in all these post this method works fine and even works to creat
a xp install from usb but for all the dummies who dont read the directions right just leave
your computer the way it is yes you need x86 to create 32 bit boot disk as you need x64
version to creat x64 also less you doo all this from a virtual machine you can bypass all the
steps after diskpart and use the simple xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ with the actual disk or
mounted iso image or for even the short buss cumputer techs on here just download win to
flash if you dont know how to code or understand the simple comands given to you

Worked like a charm! I was having network connection difficulties on my HP mini 210. It
would connect wireless for about 15 minutes then drop and not come back. HP determined
that it might be a windows issue and wanted me to reinstall Windows 7 Starter with their
USB drive. Rather than wait over 5 days for the drive, I followed these steps (very clear
btw) and it booted right into the reinstall and it kicked off just fine. Now I can put a fresh
install of 7 Ultimate on and see if that fixes it. Thanks!

This version of F:boot\bootsect.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows youre
running. Check your computers system information to see whether you need a X86 (32-Bit)

I SOLVED IT
just unomounted the iso from virtual drive and did all the steps again..

this is why ppl got this problem

For anyone having problems with the initial setup starting again from scratch when the
computer restarts, it isnt necessary to remove the USB drive at any point.
Simply monitor the installation process closely and when the computer restarts for the first
time, re-enter BIOS immediately and change the boot device priority so that the (non-USB)
hard drive is the first boot device. Save settings and exit BIOS.
This only needs to be done once and the rest of the installation will complete successfully,
regardless of the number of restarts.

usb device in some kind.
I usually use that one for having live Linux-Images handy, created by UNIVERSAL-USB-
INSTALLER from pendrivelinux.com
The thing now is, that it is not possible for me to get that working again. I think this is
caused by the action of BOOTSECT.EXE Is there any possibility to undo the changes
bootsect.exe has made? Id be very glad, if you can help me. I will also write a more
detailed description if needed.
Regards
hringriin

hi there!
this is really great, i just have 1 question though
when you Copy your Windows 7/Vista DVD contents to the USB flash drive, do you need to
create a folder first or just copy all the files to the USB.
also does it matter if the windows 7 is in .iso format? or you need to extract all files first and
then copy to USB? thank you so much!

Hey
Firstly to the author of this article, this was terrific. A fantastic guide with very clear
instructions. Thanks very much for this.
Secondly to Jeff; you dont need to create a folder. After following the instructions set out
here, make sure that there is nothing on the USB drive and then copy the contents of the
windows disk (in their entirety) onto the drive. Make sure that the BIOS loads from the drive
first, or press F12 during boot, and youre set.

you cant follow it, perhaps, you shouldnt be installing windows via usb and go grab yourself
an external dvd drive.

Instead of using format fs=ntfs use
format quick fs=ntfs
This will take a few seconds, where just format can take up to a few minutes depending on
the USB drive.

So I got through the guide splendidly, the PC booted, but the data were somehow corrupt,
so the installation couldnt get to an end. But when I inserted the stick and wanted to
rewrite the data, so I could do all that again, Win just couldnt find it. No trace of inserting
anywhere. Anyone any hints? I never heard about making a brick out of USB, but I might
have just done that xD

As other have said above me (#286 for one), you dont need to type D: CD BOOT and
then CD BOOT the first command D: and then the second command CD BOOT is fine.
Anything after the space in the D: command was ignored. All you are doing is navigating
the command prompt to D:\BOOT. Thats just how the command line works.

If youre having trouble finding your disk in list disk you can just type select volume D: for
example (where D: is the drive letter of your usb). Also for the format selection you can also
type FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK so the format is a quick format rather than a 5-10 minute
one.
Good Luck!

Please note that Windows 7 setup doesnt support USB 3.0 device to boot from. This causes
a error during installation that the installer needs drivers. Very simple solution is to put the
USB stick into a USB 2.0 port!

TO MADMAX, franz99, Doug, chrisNova777, and anyone else experiencing the BOOT
0xc000000e when trying to boot to the flash drive, I have firgured it out. I tried this with 3
different flash drives and every one of them gave me the EXACT same 0xc000000e message
when trying to boot. c:\bootsect.exe /nt60 x: /force That did it for all 3 drives. 1 Patriot
drive, 1 PNY, and 1 Super Talent, 1 SanDisk, and 1 Kingston and they all worked just fine
after using the /force command after /nt60 I hope this helps all who encounter this
problem.

This guide works 100% for Vista & Windows 7 unlike most of the guides out there. I have
seen many sites/blogs that have Install Vista from USB guide but either with incomplete
steps or not working guide. I have also seen some guides that dont use proper commands
in this guide. After spending many hours I have come up with this 100% working guide.
Hummmmm. Doesnt work for me. I have no USB drive listed when I use list disk command
in diskpart.

I had tried multiple instructions with all failures. This worked perfect and I took my all
versions image and it worked so that I could choose from all versions of either 32 bit and
64bit versions. Now all I would like to do is include a SP1 slipstreamed onto the flash drive
and I would be really happy:)) Any suggestions to being able to modify configuration for a
slipstream update?

THEN I PUT D: CD BOOT AND CD BOOT THEN
BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 E: FOR MY FLASH I GET A MESSAGE
SAYING
This version of D:\bootsect.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows youre
running. Check your computers system information to see wheter you need x86 (32-bit) or
x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the sofware publisher.
so i was guessing i need to do the setup of cmd from a x64 bit computer to make my flash
drive get the info from cd x64 to the flash drive
but im clueless now, since i dont think that matters since it didnt read the disk yet, any
suggestions?

Hi sir,
thanks for your share.but the FORMAT FS=NTFScommand line just to install legacy Win7
O.S. only. It cant install the UEFI Win7 O.S with Win7 64bit DVD Disc.
You can changed the command line like as FORMAT QUICK FS=FAT32$ to format the USB
flash disk.
Thanks!

Hi BATZZZ19,
To create 64BIT O.S. to USB flash disk, you need to install 64 bit O.S. to your platform and
then typing the BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 E: command line with cmd prompt under 64 bit O.S.
Best regards,

the boot priority at the BIOS to USB from the HDD or CD ROM drive.
notice that you need to change this priority after copying win files into HDD to continue

The shortcut version:
1. Format your USB to NTFS using the Windows GUI and keep it plugged in
2. Open your iso using MagicISO or some other app and extract boot/bootsect.exe
3. Run bootsect.exe /nt60 :
4. Copy all contents of iso to your USB

Master, I have problems after doing these four parts. FORMAT FS = NTFS (Formats the
process may take several seconds) at first it went well up to 20 per cent, after that it turned
to 0 per cent to wait too long. So I did re-from the first part, and it does not run again. So
how to return the flash drive to the original as not doing the things above?
Please, I hope the Master can help my problem.

never returns to say Diskpart successfully formated the volume, nor does it return to a
prompt that I can type further commands.
Ive tried searching through all these responces to find an answer, but Im just not seeing
one.

Should you also copy over the auto run from the windows disc? It asked me if i wanted to
keep, replace, or use both auto-runs.
I didnt know an auto-run was already created on the USB drive but I opted to keep the one
on the USB drive and it seemed to work. Would it not work if i had used the auto-run file
from the windows disc?

Its simple. If you are using a flash drive (they are mostly small thumb drives with 4, 8, 16,
or 32 GB capacity), then select USB FDD. FDD If you are using an external hard drive, select
USB HDD.

Here is a simple way to do it, no typing in cmd needed:
Acquire Windows 7 .iso (do not unzip)
Get an empty USB flash drive with 8GB+ space
Format the drive to NTFS if its not already (Start -> Computer -> right click the drive ->
Format -> select NTFS, uncheck quick format)
Google Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool and download from the first link, microsoft
store
Install, open and follow directions to make a bootable USB.

This is incorrect information for those using SSD SATA for the operatiing system (Dell
2012). Must use CLEAN ALL, not CLEAN. BTW: CLEAN ALL will not run from USB device, so
unable to properly format SSD to install Windows. E.g., any registry problems will simply
pick upo where they left off. Sorry folks. Win 8 may, may resolve.

I have the same problem as Daryl over me here, I used exit to get of the Diskpart part of
the guide.
Now my External drive dossnt have an assigned letter, It dossnt let me assign a letter and
it dossnt show up in My computer
I used a program called USBDeview and I could see that the External drive was infact still
connected, but diddnt have an assigned drive letter nor could i assign one.
My question here I guess is: How do i Recover the drive and after doing that do i have to
format it and all again?
Because that took 5-6 hours on my 500gb drive on this shitty pc, and would just seem like a
waste of time.
Therefore if you cannot help me with this Im off to go buy some fucking CD-Rs and do it

An oversight by Microsoft ensured that I cant use a 64bit install DVD on a 32bit system
without booting from the DVD. Part of this oversight also prevented the DVDs from being
able to boot AND their process for making a 64bit bootable flashdrive doesnt work on a
32bit system. Your explanation for how to make a bootable flashdrive allowed my to use the
32bit bootsect.exe from the 32bit DVD to turn my nook into a bootable drive with the 64bit
install software. My solution is jury-rig, but your explanation was a fine piece of work!
Bravo!

I have a 1 TB USB ext. disk connected to my PC, but I also have a 1 TB hard disk inside the
PC I am working on.
And I cant tell which is which using disk part.
Both look identical showing as 931 GB disks with no empty space. It might be a stupid
question but I really cant find the answer.
How do I identify(command)hard disks inside disk part?

just simply go to your device manager look out for your usb check its properties and go to
policies tab than check the optimize for performance button after that format usb in NTFS.

@DanielF
Does your thumb drive or SD card have a write protect switch on it? If not, chances are
your card/drive is dead most of the time the ability to write dies first, so you can read the
contents of a drive, but not write to it. I would try another thumb drive to see if the problem
persists across devices.

Thanks! Almost perfect guide. This works flawlessly, but all little boys and girls should be
told that they are going to have driver instalation problems in very begining of w7
instalation if they use usb3 port instead usb 2. i had this gaind problem when i was using
usb 3 port: A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy
disk, CD, DVD or USB flash drive, please insert it now. Note: If the Windows Installation
media is in the Cd/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step After i changed my usb
stick to usb 3 port instalation works just fine. =)

Honestly, I thought this absolutely amazing! I have searched high and low, most sites want
to install software to apparently do what you instructed, while saving a minute or two, which
also lead to an array of annoyances. Thank you for the input.

Exactly what part of those pictures validates the use of the Copyright symbol? Do you own
copyright on MS-Dos or Command Prompt? Do you own copyright on the process of
formatting a drive?
Did you know it is illegal to claim copyright of something you have no rights to?

You dont mention Microsoft Windows as a requirement ie you have to already have a
copy of Microsoft Windows installed on your computer in order even try this. I only have the
iso files for Microsoft Windows 7 (and lang pack) my computer is running Ubuntu (or no
OS at all, of course).

@Andy
That error means something is trying to format the drive already. Either wait until it is done
or reboot and try again.
It also helps(is quicker) to use the command:
FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK
That command does a quick format which takes significantly less time.
@Sevs
Decompress the iso file in a folder on your C Drive, so the directory will be C:\Win7\(winrar
will do this) and then instead of :

I have a simplistic question. how is the ISO file copied over to the USB? is it simply drag &

everything went fine upto this point.

Im having a small issue with the guide, my laptop restarted overnight after format
fs=ntfs, but before assign, and if i redo the steps now he will not select partition 1
anymore even though it is in the partition list.
I tried reformatting the USB through windows and redo all from the start, but it seems the
partition is still there, and so i cannot create partition primary again, cause theres not
enough space.
Is there any way around this or should i find a different USB?
