Hi Guys Matt from 123myit. In this video, I will show you how to create a Windows 11 bootable USB. Creating a Bootable Windows 11 USB will allow you to install Windows 11 on multiple computers. You will need a USB flash drive that is at least 8GB in size and you will need a copy of Windows 11. To download a copy of Windows 11 you can check out the how to download Windows 11 video I did earlier and I will put a link in the top of the video now.
Download Windows 11 – Windows 11 bootable usb
Once you have followed my other video and downloaded the Windows 11 iso file. Plug in your USB drive to your computer and double click the Windows 11 iso file. We will be formatting the USB so make sure you backup any files on the USB as this process will wipe any files on the USB.
Open up Disk Management by right clicking the Start button or in the search field type “partitions” and click the top result. The Disk Management screen should pop up. Find you USB drive in this case I know my USB drive was around 60 GB in size so this 57 GB drive is the correct one. Just make sure you have the correct drive because this next step will delete data on the USB.
Deleting Partitions – Windows 11 bootable usb
Delete all partitions on your removable USB drive by right clicking on each and selecting “Delete Volume.
Cool, once you have done that right click again and create New Simple Volume. Click next and type 1000 in the Simple volume field. Click next and next again. Then set your file System to FAT32 and rename your Volume label as BootPart. Then click next and finish. IF done right the drive will pop up in Windows. Do the same steps again, but in the Volume label type DATAPART. Click next and then finish.
The DATAPART window will also popup just close it.
Double click on the Windows 11 ISO file and Copy all the files and folders, except the “sources” folder, from the Windows 11 ISO to the FAT32 BootPart partition on the USB drive.
To do this select all your files then hold down CTRL and click on the sources folder. This will exclude the folder from the copy. Once you have done that just drag the files across to the BOOTPART partition on the USB.
Once they are, all copied go ahead and create a new empty sources folder. Make sure it is the same name as the source folder you did not copy across.
Next, go into the sources folder and find a file called boot.wim and copy to the new sources folder on the USB drive. Cool, now go to the Disk Part partition on the USB and copy the all the files from the Windows 11 ISO to the DISKPART partition.
Awesome, once the files have copied across you have finished creating a Windows 11 bootable USB. You can now use this USB to install Windows 11 on any computer. In my next video, I will show you how to use this USB to do a clean install of Windows 11.
