Whenever we want to create Bootable USB we look for software's to do the same. The easiest and most convenient way to create a Bootable USB is through command prompt(CMD). Bootable USB is used as windows installation media  so we need USB drive with minimum 4GB of size but larger size is preferred.


1. Insert your USB drive in your computer. Then run Command Prompt as an administrator by typing 'cmd' in the search box on Windows Start Menu. Right click on 'cmd' and select "Run as administrator".

3. Type 'list disk' and hit Enter. This will list all the active disk on your computer. Active disks shown as Disk 0 for hard drive and Disk 1 for your USB flash-drive with its total capacity will be displayed.
4. Type 'select disk 1' and hit Enter. This will select your USB drive.
5. Type 'clean' and hit Enter. This will remove all of data in the drive.
6. Type 'create partition primary' and hit Enter. Creating a primary partition and further recognized by Windows as 'partition 1'.
7. Type 'select partition 1' an hit Enter. This will set 'partition 1' as an active partition.
8. Type 'active' and hit Enter. Activating current partition.
9. Type 'format fs=ntfs quick' and hit Enter. Formatting current partition as NTFS file system quickly.
10. Type 'exit' and hit Enter. Leaving DISKPART program but don't close the Command Prompt instead. We would still need it for next process.
