Bootable usb pendrive using cmd

This documentation describes how to create a usb pendrive using command prompt

Note: This method does not work if your operating system is windows XP or windows 8 , you cannot select the primary partition in command prompt.

To begin:
To obtain the windows files from somewhere and save them to a folder in your pc. You can rip a windows dvd , or if you have the iso image file you can open it with magic disc or daemon tools or even Winrar , and you need to copy the whole content to a folder anywhere in your pc

Make sure your usb stick is inserted, go to start search cmd , right click the file and select run as administrator.


The command prompt will appear, now you need to write the following commands:

  • diskpart
  • list disk
  • select disk (chose the usb device, you will recognize it by its size)
  • clean(this will erase the usb)
  • create partition primary
  • select partition 1
  • active
  • format fs=ntfs quick



After the format is done you have to continue writing in command promt :


  • assign (now you will notice that the usb drive changed its letter)
  • exit (this command will exit the disk part function)


Now you can copy the content of windows installer CD to the USB
