My windows crashed the other day. I want to install Windows 8 64-bit on my other laptop. For that i am trying to make my 4GB pendrive bootable as my DVD drive does not work in the crashed computer. I am trying to make the pendrive bootable from a 32-bit windows 7 laptop and then it shows compatibility error. How can I fix this? I need the solution asap. So I hope you guyz will reply!!!

open cmd,
write diskpart

"list disk" <- see whats your usb

"select disk <USB Number>" to select ur device

"clean" <-clean ur device

"create partition primary"

"select partition=1" <- select the partition

"active" <- activate it

"format fs=fat32" <-

"assign" <- make it visible in the explorer

close the cmd-window C:\windows\system32\diskpart.exe

go to cmd-window C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe insert this :

xcopy <Image>:\*.* <USB Stick>:\*.* /S /E /F

<Image> letter of drive its mounted into

<USB Stick> letter of ur USB .
