Create a Bootable USB Key Thumb Drive in Windows Vista/7 with the Command Line

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/07

Open a command prompt with administrator rights and enter the following sequence of commands:

  • diskpart
  • list disk
  • select disk {number}
  • clean
  • create partition primary
  • select partition 1
  • active
  • format fs=fat32 quick
  • assign
  • exit

Which was for experimenting with a few of the entries in Top 5 Free Rescue Discs for Your Sys Admin Toolkit and Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10.

I think I like Download Hiren’s BootCD 15.2 | HBCD Fan & Discussion Platform most.

Another way to get it on a USB stick is through Launching Hiren’s BootCD from USB Flash Drive | HBCD Fan & Discussion Platform.

Wiping out the HPA and DCO stays difficult though: linux – Harddrive – wipe out “hidden areas” like HPA and DCO also after malware infection – Super User.
