  1. OEM Format


    Hello everyone,

    I formatted my OEM recovery while using diskpart to assign a character to a disk. It was a mistake and now it's formatted.

    Knowing that the OEM can't be recovered, I would like to ask if I wil reinstall the same windows version again(WINDOWS 10 HOME), with the same genuine product key I have, will it work.

    I wanna know if my windows will be genuine if I'll reinstall the same version with same product key on the same computer if anything goes wrong in near future.

    Thank you.

    :)

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!

    Clean install on a OEM formatted GPT disk?


    Hi there

    Note - when using DISKPART the LIST DISK command will show an '*' for GPT formatted disks if you are unsure of which of yours are GPT formatted.
