    Formatting the partition with the format command should result in it getting a drive letter (such as E:\) automatically. The command assign will give it a drive letter if that did not happen automatically.

    Hi,

    I worked a little with Disk part because I wanted something very easy, fast and without any other software to use.

    I think that using Disk part is though a little Dangerous. In my case, when I select the disk I don't have the LABEL of the disk but only the size and the position. Also, is easy to wrong something in a command interface.

    I want only to ask that if I do these things with the simply Disk management of Windows I will achieve the same result.

    I mean:

    - DELETE the partition of USB
    - CREATE IT
    - FORMAT FAT32
    - MARK as ACTIVE
    - COPY ISO (extrated files) inside

    This will let me to obtain a WORKING usb pen drive that wil be useful for LEGACY and for UEFI even with SECURE BOOT on?

    I haven't done it with diskpart lately. I seem to remember though, that there were certain things it wouldn't let you do if it was a thumb drive? "mark as active might be one of them. I don't have a thumb drive handy to test it out though. And I have some other things on the go at the moment.

    I've done 2 CU upgrades over AU in the last 4 days. I copied the .iso file to an 8GB USB Thumb drive, plugged it into a port, opened File Explorer to that drive, right-clicked the .iso file and chose Mount. Then I went to that drive in File Explorer, double-clicked the setup.exe file and installed. In the process I chose NOT to do the updates, finished the install and when it was running good did the updates.

    I used the MCT Thursday evening to get the .iso file, it installed Version 1703 Build 15063.0. Then I updated and got Version 1703 Build 15063.413 installed.

    Here we try to find easy and safe way to make a bootable w10 iso usb drive for both uefi and legacy.

    I wonder if i copy the iso extracted in a fat32 active usb it will work?

    Could i avoid the dangerous disk part using wibdows or ie wizard partition tool?

    It will work?

    The Media Creation tool will do it all for you. The install media it makes is good for UEFI and Legacy. Any of these methods can be dangerous if you don't pay attention to what your doing.

    Including the Media Creation Tool if the user has an external USB hard drive plugged in when running the MCT and they pick that instead of a flash drive.

    Exactly my point. any of these methods can be dangerous if you don't pay attention to what your doing.

    But of all the methods, the MCT, IMHO, is the easiest method if your just making the one thumb drive. If your doing up more than one though its a bit of a pain as it wants to redownload the media every time you use it. If you already have the ISO, diskpart is nice and quick, and lends itself to doing multiple drives.
