Creating a bootable USB
I am always needing this info and so many articles are too long or in video form, so I created this abridged version.
Mount ISO image using OS or third party app like Virtual Clone Drive by Elaborate Bytes
For this run-through we assume the USB is mounted as E: and the ISO is mounted as F:
Assume the USB drive shows as Disk 2
- Select disk 2
- create partition primary
- select partition
- format fs=exfat quick label=”mylabel”
I used /net60 as I was doing Server 2016 at the time
- cd f:\boot
- f:> bootsect /net60 e:
Copy Files From ISO to USB:
- robocopy f:\ e:\ /e /mt:24
Should be all good to go
You mentioned that you can improve with documentation.
Try this. Every time you use documentation, add or adjust a part of it that wasn’t right. If there is no documentation for something you are looking for, start some. You don’t need to document the entire thing, just a start with perhaps a summary or note on what you want to remember next time. With an iterative approach to documentation it will get done and stay more up-to-date.
