Create Bootable Windows Server 2016 USB Stick





I recently had the need to install Windows Server 2008 from a USB stick. This was because I didn’t have a working DVD drive to hand. I found a couple of tutorials online explaining how to create the disk. They generally explained this technique:

C:\> diskpart

DISKPART> list disk

     Select the USB device from the list and substitute the disk number below
     when necessary

DISKPART> select disk 1
DISKPART> create partition primary
DISKPART> select partition 1
DISKPART> active
DISKPART> format fs=fat32
DISKPART> assign

xcopy X:\*.* /s/e/f Y:\

     where X:\ is your mounted image or physical DVD and Y:\ is your USB

However it appears diskpart is unable to see USB sticks under Windows XP. I have later tried on Vista and this limitation appears removed. But for those using Windows XP I have found an alternative method.

Firstly find the bootsect.exe tool on the Windows Server disc (in the boot directory). Then run this command where U is the drive letter of the USB stick.

D:\boot> bootsect.exe /nt60 U:

Now copy all the files from the Windows Server disc onto the USB stick. This can be done by dragging in the GUI or using the xcopy method shown previously.

Buenas chicos/as de Taringa, quería hace tiempo hacer un POST para recomendar alguna de las aplicaciones que más se usa en GNU/Linux y sobre todo para aquellos que vienen de Windows. También para aquellos que no saben que alternativa usar, incentivarlos a buenas alternativas. Basicamente me centraré en Ubuntu en cuanto a instalaciones. Estimado lector, lo invito a que lea y vea el POST:
