Create a bootable USB-drive for OS-installations

Purpose: Install an operating system with a USB-device.

This post has nothing to do with SCCM. You have an ISO file and want to install that ISO file MANUALLY with an USB-device without any automatisation (yeah, this might still be relevant after all).

Use a tool
#1 Download your operating system ISO-file from the Microsoft download center.
#2 Download the following application that will create a bootable Windows 7 USB-device.
Microsoft Windows7-USB-DVD-tool.exe
Create boot media manually

open command-prompt

select partition 1
active
format fs=ntfs
diskpart
list disk
select disk #
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
format fs=ntfs

copy your boot media source files to the USB-drivce
