The steps for preparing the USB Disk.

1. Diskpart
2. List Disk
3. Select Disk 1 (Replace 1 with number reflecting your USB Drive)
4. clean
5. create partition primary
6. active
7. format fs=fat32 quick
8. assign

Now, a drive letter reflecting the drive should appear. Copy the bits from the DVD to the USB Stick.
If you get errors along the way, simply remove the drive and repeat the process.

Author's article:
http://edge.technet.com/Media/Installing-W...ng-a-USB-Stick/

There's also a video tutorial - http://mschnlnine.vo.llnwd.net/d1/edge/2/1...7onUSB_edge.mp4

One note: diskpart doesn't allow this operation when running under XP.

When using DISKPART you only need to specify the first three letters for most commands e.g. FOR for FORMAT, CRE for CREATE - helps to speed up the process.

and writing a txt command file:

QUOTE
The diskpart commands may be placed in a text file (one command per line) and used as an input file to diskpart.exe:
DiskPart.exe < diskpart.txt


will speed it even more.

FYI, I found a way to include diskpart commands in a batch, so that you can write a batch with the options you want:

Slightly more 'universal' way:
1. Format USB stick using HP USB format tool, FAT32 or NTFS
2. Copy contents of the DVD to the USB stick
3. If this is performed on 2000/XP/2003 system- rename BOOTMGR to NTLDR in USB stick root, or use bootsect.exe /nt60 U:, where U: is USB stick drive letter. Bootsect.exe can be found in the Vista/7 DVD.

The goal is booting without the HP tool since it's not legal to redistribute.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

diskpart works good in Vista/7, just too bad that XP doesn't like USB, wonder if there is a way to fix this? (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)

Umm, it seems quite a lot of respectable internet sites are breaking this, not an excuse though. I wonder is there any EULA with the previous versions, 2.0.6 for example? (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

Usage of dummydisk.sys or cfadisk.sys in order to present removable disks as fixed. Then partitioning operations are allowed as normal.
Or you meant something else?

It's not written but would be nice to use a tool perfectly legal and acessible for everyone, the HP tool has quite a reputation but I know we can do far better.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Hmm.. bright idea.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/1st.gif) Could this become a good solution?

Do you know if would it be possible to install and run the driver without reboot?

If so, we could have a good solution to install and uninstall on demand when using XP.

One could even do a little wizard wrapper to help users use diskpart and select the right USB drive.

This is an interesting thought, I wouldn't mind seeing a simple solution based on diskpart for all recent NT's.

@ilko

The HP USB Formatting tool comes with an EULA allright, also VERSION: 2.1.8 Rev. A

Find it attached, or download the package from here:
http://www.bay-wolf.com/usbmemstick.htm
and find it inside (open files with 7zip) as lic_US.rtf.

The EULA is shown when running SPSP27608.exe and you have to accept it to go on.

And just to add to the reason why I am currently (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/mad.gif) with Nuno (no, I am not, just kidding (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) ):
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?...429&st=1078


you may find this interesting (should you have missed it at the time):
http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?...=4902&st=48

to expand on it, there is a "version" of the HP USB utility that is just 34 Kb, simply because the embedded DOS 7.1 files were removed....(IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/happy22.gif)

As said, "technology" and info is already available, all that is missing is someone with propgramming skills to actually write a few lines of code....(IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

I have written an XP command line program RMPARTUSB to partition and format USB drives (FAT16 only so less than 2GB) and place on bootmgr boot code all in one go. It also has a GUI XP front end RMPREPUSB which calls the command line program.
I wrote this for the company I work for but it is free to use.
I intend to add FAT32 support to it at some time.
