An easy technique is that you can easily use your pendrive or some external  USB to format your system by making them bootable .Here  I am here to show you how to do it actually:-



All you need to do is to open the command prompt and run it as  an administrator. To run it as an administrator you have to right-click on it and several options appear.  From there you have to select run it as an administrator. In some situations you need to give the administrator password.

Then all the disks which are connected to your system will be displayed including your USB. Then you have to note down the number next to your USB drive.


You have to now select your USB drive by using the command select disk # , replace # with the number you noted down from the previous step. Here as shown in the figure the selected disk is Disk 1. So value of # is 1.


Now what you need to do is to clean the flash drive. For this job to be done you have to enter the command clean  to have the disk management utility ans this will verify your USB drive and thus will format your drive.


As your USB drive is clean you need to type the command create partition primary. A message will appeared in the screen saying that the operation was successful.


Now type the command create partition 1 and press enter for selecting the new partition. And after that once a confirmation message is received , type active and press enter. This command will activate the partition.


Now write the command format fs=fat32 to format your USB drive. When you press enter , the program will  run for a few minutes and if the  usb is small example 8GB  then it would take around 25 mins for slow format and all you can monitor in percentage.

The last but not the least step is to copy the operating system you want to install because the USB is now made bootable.  You can drag your files to the USB or simply copy it. For smooth installation of your operating system you should copy all the drivers needed during installation.

                                      TECHNIQUE :-2
