How To Make Bootable USB Drive Without Software

Required :

  • A working Windows 7 system with a DVD drive and administrator rights.
  • Usb Flash Drive(4GB+)
  • Windows Vista/7 OS DISK(DVD)

Step 1 : Format USB Drive

Use The Command Line to format the usb disk properly using the DISKPART Option.

 Plug in your USB Drive

 Click Start > All Programs > Accessories and right-click on command prompt. Select “Run As Administrator”(You need to be able to authenticate as the administrator on the PC You’re using).

Command Prompt As Administrator

Command Prompt As Administrator

 Type the following command into the command prompt windows.

Type:

DISKPART

 This will open up the partitioning application

Next Type :

LIST DISK

Figure out which of the drives listed is your USB drive, and note the number. It’s crucial you get this right, or you’re going to end up losing data on other drives.

 Format the drive by typing the next instructions into the same window. Replace the number “1” with the number of your disk below.(Here, my disk is number 1. Don’t confuse this with PARTITION 1. That number should not change, even if your disk is 3)

Type:

select disk 1

clean

create partition primary

select partition 1

active

format fs=NTFS

assign

exit

Diskpart all steps

When that is done you’ll have a formatted USB flash drive ready to be made Bootable.

Step 2: Make the Drive Bootable

                     Insert your Windows Vista / 7 DVD into your drive.

Change directory to the DVD’s boot directory(Your DVD Drive) where bootsect lives:

Type:

d:

cd d:\boot

[a]

Identify Drive Letters

Use bootsect to set the USB as a Bootable NTFS drive prepared for a Vista/7 image. I’m assuming that your USB flash drive has been labeled disk   E:\ by the computer:

Type :

bootsect /nt60 e:

Bootsect

Bootsect

Note: The format step may take a little while (it actually took about 25 minutes on my machine).

You can now close the command prompt window, we’re done here.

Step 3: Copy the installation DVD to the USB drive. This will also take a while

Copy the installation DVD to the USB drive

Step 4 : Set your BIOS to Boot from USB

Now you should be all set – just insert the USB disk into your new PC, and enter the BIOS to adjust the boot order, or choose the option during start-up which says Choose Boot Device.

Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
