2.  On your command prompt please type “diskpart” and then hit “Enter”.

3.  Type “list<space>disk”. It will show you all the drives including the only USB connected. Remember the disk number of your USB drive.

4.  Type “select<space>disk<space>(number of the USB drive).

5.  Type “clean”, this command will all data save in your USB device to make it sure that you have the maximum disk space for your bootable.

6.  So we have selected now the proper USB drive. Type “create partition primary” and hit “Enter”.

7.  Type “select partition 1” so system will point to your USB partition 1 and then hit “Enter”. It will show you message that it selected USB partition and “*” symbol will show.
