      Did you try some of the solutions posted below? Why did they not work? What operating system do you have and is this a USB flash drive or a hard drive that you're trying to make bootable?

    open CMD
    type DISKPART
    diskpart> list vol
     diskpart> sel vol  (drive vol num e:g 4)
    diskpart> avtive
    diskpart> exit

    now copy windows XP setup files to flash drive
    and boot usb from boot manu and run setup.exe

    Hi Natin,

    If you don't mind me asking, why must it be done from the command prompt? MakeUseOf has an excellent article on this, How To Create A Bootable USB Drive From Your Windows CD. If you want to create a bootable Linux Live USB, checkout Pen Drive Linux and UNetBootin. HowToGeek wrote an article on UNetBootin, you may read that here. Another article you may want to checkout is, Four Ways To Create a Bootable USB Drive by Webupd8.
