Many of us think that is there any way we can make a bootable flash drive from another way instead of using some software. If you are one of them then you are right. There is also a way to make a bootable flash/pen drive without using a software. We can also create a bootable USB drive manually using the command prompt as a windows default program.

Here is step by step guide to create a bootable USB drive as the Windows installation media. To create a bootable USB drive as a Windows installation media, we require at least 4 GB for minimum capacity. Larger capacity is better. At this moment, I use the USB flash drive with 2 GB of capacity as just an example. So, follow the below given steps to make a bootable flash/pen drive using cmd.

  1. Insert your USB flash drive to your running computer. As the first step, we need to run Command Prompt as administrator.

  3. Type 'list disk' to view active disks on your computer and hit Enter. There would be seen that the active disks shown as Disk 0 for hard drive and Disk 1 for your USB flash drive with its total capacity.
  4. Type 'select disk 1' to determine that disk 1 would be processed in the next step then hit Enter.
  5. Type 'clean' and hit Enter to remove all of data in the drive.
  6. Type 'create partition primary' and hit Enter. Creating a primary partition and further recognized by Windows as 'partition 1'.
