Restoring a (Linux bootable) USB stick for use with Windows.

(2 posts)

  1. Placeholder....

    You may have read about, or even tried - trying a new operating system by booting from a USB drive.

    The process of overwriting the USB with a bootable image is pretty straightforward... It's only a matter of double-clicking on an installer.

    Restoring that USB stick to a condition where windows can "see it" and actually read and write to it is a much more tedious task.

    This article will guide you through the steps of recovering/salvaging the stick, but will stop short of creating a Windows boot drive.

    ---------------------
    For now (until I can finish this article) you can follow steps 1 through 4 found at:

    Be sure to exercise caution as you could accidentally erase the wrong drive with this procedure.

    Some primmer/primary information is found at:

    This article will attempt to combine these sources into a user friendly set of instructions.
