Toss in any bootable CD/DVD Rom along with your usb drive and type the following command:
xcopy e:\*.* /s/e/f g:\
This is assuming "e" is your rom drive on the computer you are creating the bootable usb drive and "g" is your usb drive. Update as needed.
- Remove any third party software from the usb drive. (make a copy if you think you will want to put it back on later)
- You should format the usb drive in fat32.
- Be sure your usb drive has enough space on it to accept the data.
- The system you are going to be using the usb drive to boot from will need the option to boot from usb in the bios, some older systems do not support this feature and you will need to create a boot loader to do this instead.
Method #2, older bios updates
- format your usb drive as fat32
- copy the following win 95/98 boot files to the drive(be sure not to include any memory loaders)
- copy your bios files
- update as instructed by your motherboard, hardware controller manufacture

Open CMD.exe as administrator then do the following:
a new window may open or it may start in the current command window,
at the DISKPART> prompt type in the following.
- list disk
- (make note of the disk that is your usb drive, if you are not 100% sure do not continue as you may cause data loss)
- select disk #
- enter a number based on the previous noted disk(your usb drive)
- create partition primary
- select partition 1
- format fs=ntfs quick
- this will create a new drive on your system, make note of the drive letter.
in the admin command prompt window type the following:
- cd boot
- bootsect.exe/nt60 (DriveLetterofUSB):
- xcopy (DriveLetterofyourCD/DVDinstaller):\*.* /s /e
That's it, your done. You can now boot and install from USB.
Best things to remember for password and email security,
- Passwords, Have a secure password with a minimum of 8 characters including small and capital letters, 1 or more symbols, as well and at least 1 number.
- Don't use easy to guess passwords that contain pets, kids, parents and/or sibling names or birth dates.
- Make your password something you would never share with anyone, many people use a favorite color, food, etc.. which they also post to social media sites like facebook.
- Separate your passwords, never use the same password for everything, if a website that you use is compromised(updated: recent example linkedin database compromised) then all of the stuff you use could become compromised. Generally its a good idea to use three or more passwords with variations of those passwords that you can change around for example H3l!0WoR!D, Hell0w0r!d, HelloW0rlD. This allows you to use basically the same password in many places but if one place is compromised it will minimize the impact since you are using a variations of the passwords in each place.
- Try to avoid needing password security questions and hints, don't give real answers that a potential hacker can find with little effort.
- Public terminals, Don't use public terminals to check your email or bank information as they can contain key-loggers which will compromise your account to hackers including government agencies.
- Free WiFi, Don't use public unencrypted free WiFi to send and receive email unless you are browsing and checking email with SSL only. (https:// for sites and webmail or SSL in your email configuration)
This may seem like a lot of work but having identity theft or compromised personal information will be a lot worse.
