How to format a USB drive that was format for iOS ?

Hi all,

Recently I formatted my USB 'cause I needed to get something off a Mac,
and now I try to format it again through windows, but it says "Windows can't format the USB drive etc...".

I don't care about the data on the USB I just need to use it to install Windows on my netbook.

How can I format it to work with windows again?

  1. Use disk utilities and change the partition type to MBR.
  2. I don't have access to a Mac anymore.
    Just a PC
  3. Try something like PartedMagic (Live Linux based partition editor), few Windows based tools are able to modify the protected EFI partition OS X creates by default.
  4. Solved it, I used HP format tool
