    Installing windows off of a USB stick

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk

    Try method 2 under Windows 7 8 10 here:
    Free to Remove Readonly Attribute in Windows

    Method 2: Clear readonly status with Diskpart

    In Windows 10, 8, 7 OS, you are also able to run Diskpart in Command Prompt to clear read-only attribute on any partition on your computer. You can follow the tutorial below:

    Step 1. Open Command Line and type Diskpart

    USB stick requirements

    Is formatting required during clean install from USB stick?


    I bought a new SSD drive and used it to replace my old slow HDD in my laptop. I have just successfully installed windows 10 on it.

    During the step shown in the picture below, I clicked on "New"

    USB stick requirements [​IMG]

    Which brought me to this step

    From here, i just chose "Drive 0 Partition 4", clicked "Next", and the installation began.

    Now here is my question, does it make a difference (or is it better) if I had chosen to format "Drive 0 Partition 4" first and then install? cuz my friend is saying that I should always format before installing Windows.

    Thanks
