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:

Diskpart:

Assume the USB drive shows as Disk 2

  • Select disk 2
  • clean
  • create partition primary
  • select partition
  • active
  • format fs=exfat quick label=”mylabel”
  • exit

Make bootable:

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
