Create LiteTouch Bootable USB for UEFI or BIOS

This is what I use for creating a litetouch bootable USB.  I use this for "imaging" a system with MDT with custom applications for each build instead of deploying with a captured image.

1. Run CMD as an admin.  Type "diskpart". Run "List Disk". Check to see if your USB drive is GPT.  Your device will have a * under the GPT section if it is GPT. Note which disk your drive is, in my example, my drive is disk 1.

Disk###  Status        Size    Free    Dyn Gpt

-------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---

Disk 0   Online        465 GB 1024 KB       *

Disk 1   Online        28 GB 0 B            *

2. Type, "Select disk 1", if your drive is gpt, type "convert mbr".  If your drive is not gpt, skip the convert mbr command.

3. Type "Clean"

4. Type "create partition primary"

5. Type "select partition 1"

6. Type "format fs=fat32 quick"

6. Type "active"

7. Type "assign"

8. Type "exit"

9. Lastly, mount your litetouch iso and copy the contents to your freshly formatted USB drive.

Here is my session:

DISKPART> list disk
