Here is such a way to create your USB Device into a Windows Bootable USB to Format or Install Windows 10 or any other Version of Windows OS whether your USB Device is a Pen Drive/USB Stick/Flash Drive, SD Cards connected to a Card Reader, OTG Devices or some other USB Device.

How to Create a Windows Bootable USB without any Software
Step 2: Now when the Command Prompt Opens up, Launch the ‘DiskPart utility’ by typing “diskpart“.
Step 3: Type “list disk” command which will find the available drives with their Appropriate Size.
Step 4: Type “select disk 1” where the ‘1’ is actually the corresponding number of your USB drive. Make sure you choose the correct flash drive if you have more than one of the same size.
Step 5: Type “clean” to remove all partitions.
Step 6: Then, type “create partition primary” for bootable partition.
Step 7: Type “active” to Activate it.
Step 8: Now type “format fs=ntfs quick” to Quickly Format it in NTFS. You can also use fat32 if all files on Drive are something like 3gb or smaller.
Note: You may not need a boot sector on a USB drive. Most motherboards allow booting to USBdrives.
Step 9: Type “assign” command to give that USB drive a drive letter, making it easy to access from Windows Explorer.
Step 11: Then you can copy everything from the Windows 10 or any other Version of Windows installation DVD on the USB key (a simple drag and drop will do). I would not recommend extracting directly from iso to flash drive. It will take forever, and burn up your drive.
After Creating a successful Windows Bootable USB Stick you can install to your PC & in order to do that:
Remember that while installing from USB, boot the PC and Enter Bios Setup (usually del key on bootup).
Now find where it lists the hard disk boot order (usually some kind of First Boot section), then Select Priority Device as USB.
Now you may Save and Exit Bios (usually f10).
Note: You can remove the USB flash drive after the first setup reboot, it won’t use it anymore.
