Not very long time ago, MS Windows used to be installed through a disc, CD- or DVD-ROM, or even through a floppy disc – nowadays the operating system is either preinstalled on the system drive of a new computer or laptop, or you acquire Windows directly online, complete with a digital licence, and download it yourself. But many people use a bootable USB drive to install OS on their machines. It’s quicker and more comfortable than an optical data carrier when re-installing operating system on a computer.
Bellow is the most simple and easy way on how you can create a bootable USB drive using windows 10 operating system.
Insert the USB drive into your computer’s USB port.
Press Windows Key and search for CMD, right-click on CMD and select “Run as administrator”.
Type the command “diskpart” (without quotation marks) and press enter on your keyboard.
Next, Type in “list disk” (without quotation marks). This will show you the list of storage devices on your computer.
Find the letter of your USB by looking its storage capacity, and it’s usually listed as “disk 1”. In the system partition, “disk 0” is usually your PC.
Type in the command “select disk 1” to select it (make sure, you put the type the correct disk for your USB).
Once selected, type in “clean” to delete all files from the USB.
Type in “create partition primary” to create a main partition on your flash drive.
To select the partition that you just created, type select partition 1, and then click ENTER.
To format the partition, type format fs=ntfs quick, and then click ENTER. Important
Type active, and then click ENTER.
Type exit, and then click ENTER.
Now your USB is all ready - Just extract/copy and paste the ISO files into your USB - you can use this USB to install windows on your computer system.
