Make your USB flash drive bootable on Windows 7 / 8

Replace ‘#’ with the disk number of your USB flash drive as appeared in “list disk” below

diskpart
list disk
select disk #
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
format quick fs=fat32
assign
exit

 

Note: “format fs=fat32” (if you choose to use ntfs, you’ll later have to run the “Bootsect.exe /nt60 K:” command to put boot manager compatible files onto your USB flash drive to make it a bootable device).
