Yours needs before making bootable USB for windows 10

You will need a USB drive. The minimum capacity is 4 GB, and I recommend using a drive that is decently fast, so the time it takes to complete the whole process is minimized. Keep in mind that, no matter which path you take, all the files on the USB drive will be erased, so make sure to back everything up. Alternatively, you can use a microSD or SD card, which works just as well based on my experience.


Different ways to create bootable USB drive for windows 10

There are a couple of ways you can create a bootable Windows 10 USB Drive. The official method involves using the aforementioned dedicated tool to download the necessary files from Microsoft’s servers and create the installation media.

There are different methods to create bootable USB for Microsoft. The method that I prefer involves writing a few lines in a command prompt window. This gives you more control over the process, and you also get to learn something new.


Steps that you will follow:

  • Open a Command Prompt window. To do this, open Run (Windows key + R will do the trick; alternatively, it can be found in the Start menu), type “cmd” and then press the OK button.
  • Alt="Command Prompt"
  • Use the “diskpart” command to open the disk partitioning software. Accept the UAC prompt, if asked, to continue.
  • Alt="Disk Part"
  • Use the “listdisk” command to display the list of storage drives — it will reveal all the HDDs, SSDs, USB drives, and so on, that are attached to your PC.
  • Alt="List Disk"
  • Identify the disk number of the USB drive that you are using — you can easily find it by looking at the size column; it is usually the last one that is listed.
  • Use the “select disk X” command to select the USB drive — “X” is the disk number of your USB drive, and it is shown in the first column.
  • Use the “clean” command to erase everything on the USB drive.
  • Use the “create partition primary” command to create a primary partition on the USB drive.
  • Use the “select partition 1” command to select that partition.
  • Use the “active” command to make said partition active.
  • Use the “format fs=fat32” command to format it as NTFS, using the Quick (fast) routine.
  • Use the “assign” command to assign a drive letter to the USB drive — it will show up as a drive under My Computer.
  • Copy the extracted contents of the Windows 10 ISO to the USB drive


If you want to use a dedicated tool for the job, you should know that there are many options. After installing it, here is what you need to do:

  1. Open the tool, click the Browse button and select the Windows 10 ISO file.
  2. Select the USB drive option.
  3. Select your USB drive from the drop down menu.
  4. Hit the Begin Copying button to kick off the process.


You can choose to make a Windows 10 bootable USB disk or DVD, though the USB offers some advantages like faster read/ write speeds. You are also likely to have a USB drive lying around, or your computer may not have a DVD drive, in which case the decision is already made for you.


Hence we come to know that this version of windows cover all the mistakes of windows 8 and 8.1. It contains good feature and specially designs for users.
