Make a bootable usb

Do you want to install windows 7 or windows 8? And you don’t have a dvd-rw or even a dvd station? Good news, you can install it from a usb drive. Of course, most of you might already knew that , but there is even better news, you don’t need software to make a bootable usb drive! You can do this very very easy with the windows command line (cmd)!

First of all if you are no it specialist, use tools like this:

Insert your usb stick in your system, open a new cmd window (start, cmd, open as administrator).

  1. diskpart
  2. list disk
  3. select disk 3 (see your window for the correct number)
  4. clean
  5. create partition primary
  6. select partition 1
  7. active
  8. format quick fs=ntfs
  9. assign
  10. exit

Now you can copy the content of your ISO to the usb drive, and it will be usable as a bootable usb!

Good luck and if you need screenshots, please comment and I will add them!
