How to make a Windows 10 Bootable USB stick that support UEFI boot.
|Make a bootable USB flash drive using DISKPARTRun CMD.EXE as an administrator (Win-X then A), then run DISKPART with the following commands (not case-sensitive):|
|Command||What it does|
|LIST DISK||Shows all mounted disks. Find your USB flash|
|SELECT DISK n||Selects the disk that future commands will use. Replace ‘n’ with the disk # for your USB flash drive.NOTE: Be careful that you don’t select your hard disk! The next command will wipe the selected drive clean.|
|CLEAN||Erases all previous partition & volume information on the flash drive.|
|CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY||Partitions the flash drive as one partition for the whole drive.|
|SELECT PARTITION 1||Selects the new partition so future commands will operate on it.|
|ACTIVE||Marks the new partition as active so the BIOS/UEFI can boot to it.|
|FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICK||Formats the partition as FAT32.(NOT NTFS!) EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!|
|ASSIGN||Assigns a drive letter to the flash drive.|
At this point your USB drive is formatted. DO NOT format the drive with Windows Explorer or format.com; you will not be able to boot from it.
|Simply Copy files to the USB Drive and Prep the Windows 10 Image on the USB drive.
