I successfully formatted a USB flash as a boot disk for my PC desktop that was downed by a virus. The virus is removed from the hard drive. Windows 98 reformated the disk, but I need to run a program through the USB drive in order to fix the E drive operation. I get an error that the E drive partition is incorrectly labeled (or may be) as non-LBA.
I want to use the same USB SanDisk Cruizer to try to fix the problem, probably with Parted Magic or Knoppix. The programs were recommended here and were useful in repairing a partition of a hard drive.
The problem is that the USB stick will not boot the PC now. I need to reformat the USB to use as it was before I put a special boot disk on it. I've erased the drive and also reformatted and tried to boot with Unbootin but this was not successful. How can I return the USB SanDisk to install these utilities?
