Formatting USB Stick using diskpart RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

         I have created a bootable usb stick using diskpart to format the drive and then adding the winpe image to it using the windows aik. The diskpart commands that I run are below. I notice that before formatting my USB Stick, it is listed in the BIOS as a USB-ZIP0 device (a "Removable" device). After formatting it is listed in the BIOS as USB-HDD0 (A USB Hard Drive?). I am trying to figure out a way to make it bootable but still have it appear as a USB-ZIP0 in the BIOS. Any help would be appreciated

    Diskpart commands:

    SELECT DISK 1
    CLEAN
    CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
    SELECT PARTITION 1
    ACTIVE
    FORMAT FS=FAT32
    ASSIGN
    EXIT
