In this blog post, we’ll look at initial and intermediate ways to create your own bootable Prompt Valley USB drive with a Windows ISO file to install or reinstall Windows 11, and therefore Windows 10, on UEFI-based computers.

Create A Bootable USB Drive To Mount Windows 11 Using DiskPart (command Line)
- Connect your USB drive to your computer.
- Open a command prompt window as an administrator. (Type cmd in the checkbox and just press + ctrl Shift + Enter) and then type diskpart and press Enter to launch the DISKPART prompt.
- First, find out the number of the specific USB drive, and then run the list disk command from the DISKPART prompt. The command displays a different list of disks by technology. Pay attention to the serial number of ourdestination USB drive.
- Now in DISKPART run Disk select x Receive (where x is the disk checklist number, in our case this method is 1) in time to get focus.
- After selecting a drive, run clean sell for to remove all partitions on the drive type, then run convert gpt save to convert the drive from MBR to GPT. .
- To create the very first primary partition on an Adobe USB drive, create a Critical Size=1024 partition or create a Pri Size=1024 partition, then press Enter < /kbd>. Once you've created a partition, your current focus will automatically move to the new partition, but it won't be assigned a primary drive letter. So run the assign command to assign the next available drive from your drive letter to the partition. Now select format fs=fat32 quick and press enter to quickly format the new partition in FAT32 file format.
- Now create an additional primary partition using the maximum unallocated space. To do this, enter the section create primary or create part pri, then press Enter. Don't forget to assign a drive letter to the partition as it doesn't automatically generate one. Then run format fs=ntfs and thus press Enter to format each newly created partition in NTFS information format.
- After that, mount and browse the downloaded ISO file with explorer and copy the efi boot directories combined with the sources (with boot.wim only) with the bootmgr and bootmgr.efi files copied to the FAT partition and from the installation files. , copy the second of all partitions, i.e. NTFS Plus (for details, send directory structure diagram), your Windows 11 bootable USB drive will be ready to use.
Progressive (UEFI-based) computers boot from a large system partition called the EFI System Partition (ESP), most of which must be formatted in FAT32 file format, with FAT32 having a maximum file size of 4 GB. Around this bug of principle "The file 'install.wim' is too large for the target file system.", we create a 1 GB FAT32 partition for storagebootloader or kernel of the system specified by the operating system using the utility and an NTFS partition for the rest of the installation files.

- Plug a real blank USB stick into your computer.
- Open a PowerShell window as an administrator. (In the search field type powershell or pwsh and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter< /kbd> ).
- First, find the number of the USB flash drive, so run the get-disk cmdlet, which will list the associated physical disk objects on the computer. Note the volume number of the particular USB drive.
- Now run Clear-Disk -Number n -RemoveData -RemoveOEM (where n is the disk size, in our case only 1) to remove all data as well as OEM partitions on the USB -drive. Show drive. Remove
- After everything on the disk, type Set-Disk -Number n -PartitionStyle GPT to set the type of most partitions to GPT.
- To create a primary boot partition, give it a disk page format and save it as a FAT32 file format, use this stepPowerShell in two cmdlets New-Partition -DiskNumber n -Size 1024MB -AssignDriveLetter | Formatting the file system of a FAT32 volume
- Now create another primary partition with the specified drive letter, use the maximum available space, format and image in NTFS. To do this, use the current one-line
