By Zack - May 04, 2013

Formatting Process:

First, open up a command window with administrator privileges. On Windows 8 you can do this by pressing Windows+X and clicking Command Prompt (Admin).

  • "diskpart" 
  • "list disk". .
  • "select disk x" (where x corresponds to the number of your FLASH DRIVE. Don't pick the wrong one!!).
  • "clean". 
  •  "create partition primary"
  • "select partition 1"
  • "active"
  • "format quick fs=fat32"
  • "assign"
  • "exit"
Use the Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool to finish the bootable usb/dvd.
