    Recover USB stick from Memtest86?


    This is stupid. I created a new bootable memtest86 onto a small 4GB USB stick. All OK.
    Now it says that it is just a 26MB drive! So I went to diskpart and did a CLEAN. Great, and it shows 4GB unallocated.

    NOTHING I try, even a Create Partition Primary will then let me format this stick to make it usable again.

    Does anyone know how to do this? I have searched and all of everyone's suggestions do not work. What am I missing?
    OH, I am using 64 bit Win 10 Pro.

    :)

    Can Asus Transformer T100TA 32GB Version Get Windows 10 Upgrade?

    Yes it can be downloaded to the SD card (or a plugged in USB device), at least it can be if you go to Microsoft.com and download it directly.

    If you do this, that is go and download it directly, you can download an ISO (for transferring to DVD/USB) or a USB installation version.

    Download that, transfer it to a bootable USB stick, and delete the image from the T100's internal storage if you need to recover the space.

    Then boot off the USB stick and install from there.

    DISKPART> attributes disk clear readonly
    DISKPART> clean

    No, I just wanted to bring back the stick to 4GB. After creating the Memtest86 USB bootable stick, you can not erase it and get the stick back to the original capacity! NOTHING I tried, except the above, fixed it.

  7. These instructions come from this link. http://superuser.com/questions/54760...mtest-from-usb


    • Insert USB Disk.
    • Launch the imageUSB program that you used to create the MemTest86 USB and select the appropriate USB Disk. (Be careful and select the correct drive!).
    • Choose the Zero USB Disk option & Run.
    • Drive MBR (Master Boot Record) is now Zeroed. You will need to reinsert the drive for Windows to recognize it and prompt for formatting before you can use it again. A normal format will now recover the full capacity of the USB drive.

    Recover USB stick from Memtest86?

    Been there and tried that first. They even said it may not work and in my case it did not. Anyway, the Doskpart did work but you have to be very careful!
