    How to create a bootable Windows 10 USB flash drive

    Open File Explorer and format USB flash drive to FAT32 file system.
    Copy all files and folders from the mounted Windows 10 ISO file to USB flash drive.

    - both UEFI and BIOS bootable USB

    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk #
    clean
    create partition primary
    format fs=fat32 quick
    active
    exit
    Copy all files and folders from the mounted Windows 10 ISO file to USB flash drive.

    - only BIOS bootable USB
    These two statements, to my eyes, seem to do the same thing but you say they give differing results. What's missing between the two aside from the fact you marked a partition active in diskpart?

    Hi mate, you've misunderstood Chappies instructions slightly that's all.......both UEFI and BIOS bootable USB refers to the diskpart method below in his instructions.
    only Bios bootable USB refers to the instructions below that in his list and those are the diskpart instructions where the difference is an NTFS format which only works in a BIOS boot and not in a UEFI boot

    Hi Ztrucker..both UEFI and BIOS bootable USB refers to the Diskpart instructions below and not the file explorer instructions above as it appears in the image shown
