    Sorry to bother you but I wanted to make sure of something. The last time I created a USB drive with Windows 10 on it from your tutorial was in July 2020 The version I made that day was Windows 10 Ver. 2004 build 19041.388 as if July 24, 2020

    As I type this the MCT is creating the file for the USB drive. will I be making the latest version the "May 2021" version?

    Thanks
    Correct.

    Success using DSIKPART, at last!


    I wish to thank the OP that produced and posted this guide. You saved my bacon. I'm a 68 year old retired Systems Support Tech and haven't worked in the field since 1998. To say I'm a list rusty would be a gross understatement.

    I screwed up a perfectly fine HP Pavilion by not DEACTIVATING the admin and my accounts when moving c:\users to d:
    I'll never make that mistake again!

    I looked all over the 'net at utilities that promised everything and delivered little. I read more bull-puckey from those who, apparently know very little about even less. But you guy(s) & gal(s) have got it goin' on!

    The layout visually, the clear, concise, instructions, plus the explanations combined with the accuracy with which your steps result in exactly what you present onscreen is greatly appreciated by an old hand like me.

    Muchas gracias, amigos y amigas!

    David,

    And just to check, you do now realise that you do not need to take that drastic step in order to make good use of your D:\ drive?

    Thanks for the clear description of the steps to do this. I've just tried this for the 20H2 ISO.
    Bree,

    The method does not work for a 21H1 ISO with install.wim. The single-Edition result is still too big for Fat32.
    I've added a warning to my original post [which has now been moved to position #537 in the thread].

    See alternative suggestions in

    All the best,

    The official answer is, download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft, then download the file to the USB, and that's it.

    Hey, I'm sorry to need to make a correction in this tutorial, but whereas the tutorial indicates that at least a 4 GB USB drive would be needed for the 64-bit installation, the instructions in the MCT state "at least 8 GB" for a working size USB drive, and when I attempted the download to a 4-GB drive anyway, I was stopped by a message stating that the drive was too small. I was hoping that the tutorial was correct and the MCT was just overly restrictive in its language...

    Thank you Bob. Tutorial now updated for the larger size requirement.
