How thorough this formating should be? –  week Sep 2 '13 at 9:05
    
just like using Window install DVD format is fine i think :) –  eathapeking Sep 2 '13 at 9:11
    
I would use FreeDOS, it's small fast and simple as format.exe. –  week Sep 2 '13 at 9:30

Try Partition wizard boot disc

Download partition wizard bootable CD image file from this link

Download universal USB installer and make a bootable USB from the downloaded image file

Boot to partition wizard

Select screen size

Then you will be able to manage your partition from the partition wizard console.

1 - DISKPART and hit enter, you get the message.

2 - LIST DISK command and write down the Disk number.

3 - List of commands to type

SELECT DISK 1 (whatever your USB disk nº is)

CLEAN

CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

SELECT PARTITION 1

ACTIVE

FORMAT FS=NTFS

ASSIGN

EXIT

4 - Insert your Windows CD/DVD in your DVD-ROM (we asume it is letter D), cd to the boot directory in the CD/DVD

5 - Type: BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 E: (being E your USB stick drive letter)

6 - Copy the whole installation CD/DVD contents to the flash drive.

(Original article by Tim Fisher at about.com, this is an extract from my notes)
