    For reference, you only need to set partition active if you intend to boot flash drive in legacy bios mode. It is not needed for uefi based installations as most are these days.
    Thanks Cerberus..I was just curious if that is what the Clean command does...does it remove a USB flash drives "Active" status completely?
    I also asked earlier in the thread if entering the Active command before the Format command was OK when using Diskpart or whether the Active command must be entered after the Format command...or is it irrelevant i.e either way is OK. From what Ive read on here it appears as if either way is fine.
