A Bootable Usb Flash Drive Using Command Prompt?

To create a bootable USB flash drive, you need an ISO file of the operating system you want to create bootable and a virtual drive or an application that will allow you to create a virtual drive like DAEMON Tools to mount the ISO file. Go to DAEMON Tools Lite and download the free version. Once installed, start DAEMON Tools and mount the ISO file.

Once the ISO file is mounted, you need to launch an elevated command prompt. Click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator.” Insert your USB flash drive then in the command prompt window, type the following commands and hit Enter on every command:

  • diskpart
  • list disk – after running this command, figure out which on the listed drives is your USB flash drive
  • select disk 1 – where “disk 1” is your USB flash drive
  • clean
  • create partition primary
  • select partition 1 – where “1” is the drive number of your USB flash drive
  • active
  • format fs=ntfs
  • assign – this command normally changes the drive letter of your USB flash drive to H or G
  • exit
  • xcopy i:\*.* /s/e/f h:\ – where “i” is the drive letter of the mounted ISO file and “h” is the drive letter of your USB flash drive
  • exit
Copying files from ISO to USB

And that’s it. Your USB flash drive is now bootable.
