    Default Bootable installation USB key

    According to the training kit, the USB key must be formatted with FAT32. but according to sevenforums it can be formatted with NTFS.

    Also, is really all you have to do, is to create an active partition on a 4GB+ UFD and copy all the files from the DVD to the UFD? Because I tried that, and it would not work on a laptop that has the capability to boot from UFD.

    Diskpart
    Select UFD
    clean
    create partition primary
    format fs=fat32 quick
    active
    exit

    copied all files from the dvd to the UFD. Just like its written in the training kit. I'll try this in a lab later (have to concentrate on the more important parts at the moment) but does anyone have experience creating bootable win 7 installation UFD?

    Oh, make sure you do this from a Vista or Win7 box. Diskpart in XP doesnt recognize USB devices.
