  1. usb flash drive


    I am using windows 10. My usb flash drive does not show in disk manage but only intermittently. Often to make matters worse it freezes my mouse when I have the flash drive plugged in. Also it wont let my computer shut down when the flash drive is plugged in. So far I have tried uninstalling it several times and also changed its designated letter but none of this made any difference.

    :)

    install.wim is 7GB, how to make a bootable USB flash drive


    This is a method to make a ntfs flash drive.

    The trial and error step will be booting using Legacy BIOS...

    Code:
    Code:
    diskpart  list disk  select disk W  (change W to the disk # for the flash drive)  clean  create partition primary  format fs=ntfs  assign  exit
    This is the link:
    Guide: How to Format USB Flash Drive Using Cmd - EaseUS

    The link did not use active so that is why it is a trial and error step.

  3. USB Flash drive made bootable

    Hi Nelson,

    Check if there is any slide switch on the side that provides write protection. It show's a closed and open lock on each side. We suggest to follow these steps below:

    • Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port.
    • Click Start, type devmgmt.msc in the Search textbox and press Enter.
    • Find Disk Drives and expand it.
    • Find the USB flash drive you want to format, and double-click it. It opens the
      Properties dialog box.
    • Click Policies tab.
    • By default, the Optimize for quick removal option selected, switch it to Optimize for performance and then press
      OK.
    • Now open Computer. Right click on the USB Flash Drive and select Format. The Format dialog box now appears.
    • Select NTFS in the File System field.
    • Press Start and wait while the process will be completed.

    You can also connect the USB drive on a different computer and try formatting.

    Let us know how it goes.
