  1. Create a bootable USB flash drive using Diskpart

    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10

    There's an extra command directly after the clean command, "convert mbr". Is this mandatory now to type in convert mbr?
    I always thought that when you use the clean command, it wipes off all data, formatting and also the partition table. The next command I type after clean is create partition primary which I thought also creates the mbr. Have I got that right?..or have I been making a mistake by not typing in convert mbr after the clean command?

    :)

    Odd, I have no such problem after using Diskpart 'Clean, Convert MBR, Create partition' on this Lexar 8GB USB....

    What version of W10 do you have? Mine is 1809.

    Yes, those are the correct commands.
     
  3. Question about creation of bootable UEFI only Win10 USB flash drive with Diskpart

    Hi,

    I have a UEFI boot laptop (not Legacy BIOS).

    If I was to use Diskpart to create a Windows 10 bootable USB flash drive for UEFI only would the following commands be correct? If my understanding is correct there is no need for the "Active" command to be typed in as it isn't required for UEFI bootable
    PC's/laptops or have I got that wrong?

    diskpart

    list disk

    select disk # <- replace # with the actual disk number of the USB flash drive

    clean <- this will erase the disk selected above, make sure it is the USB flash drive!

    create partition primary

    select partition 1

    format fs=fat32

    exit

    Also, just as a matter of interest. Would it also be possible to do this procedure using Disk Management? Obviously you would have to perform the "Clean" command using Diskpart first as that command isn't available in Disk Management as far as I know
