How to make a boot usb with malwarebytes?

How to create a Malwarebytes USB Boot able flash drive which contains malware antivirus software?

Simple, you download the ISO from Malwarebytes ISO, then use 7 zip to extract the ISO onto a USB flash drive then use the Malware USB to remove computer malware and computer viruses. The Image is updated to contain new definitions for the malware antivirus software. If you have a network connection which gets detected you will be able to update virus definition files to update the  internet anti virus on this custom USB stick.

 

Open a CLI or CMD window as a the administrator then type in diskpart.

To find out which USB you want to make into a Custom USB stick use the command list disk. If you check in the image below, you can see that disk 4 is 7643 MB, that is an 8GB USB stick which I want to make into a Custom USB Stick. Therefore I need to use Select Disk 1 to work on the USB stick I need.

In diskpart type the following commands:

select disk #

detail disk – this command is for you to see if you selected the right disk, check out the size to figure out which disk you have selected, if you still can’t figure it out, read on and follow the images.

select partition #

active

 

The # sign stands for the disk number you’re working with or the partition number you are working with.

cmd administrator, cli administrator, run cli administrator, run cmd administrator

 

 

diskpart, partition disk, make partitions, make disk partitions, disk partition, disk partitions

 

selct disk, select disk number, select disk #

 

 

detail disk, diskpart detail disk, disk details, volume details

 

select partition, active partition, partition active, select partition number, select partition #, select partition active

 

 

computer disk management, disk management, disk snapin, disk management snapin, computer management snapin

If you don’t know your disk number check out the computer management disk management and there you can see the disk number assigned to each disk.

After Diskpart has loaded you have to make the partition active on the USB flash drive.

Then You have to use the function key F12 to load the boot options or the assigned function key for your computer. Then select the USB key drive to boot off and you should be able to use the Malwarebytes Bootable USB just as the MalwareBytes boot CD to remove computer malware and computer viruses.

Boot the USB key and activate the malware antivirus software by running mbam at the command prompt. This  Custom USB stick has proven to be an excellent malware antivirus software  even in business virus protection.

Created bootable USB trying both FAT and FAT32 file system following the instructions above. Verified that partition is active in Disk Management. Attempts at booting from this USB fail on Dell OptiPlex 755 with either ‘USB Device’ or ‘Onboard or USB Floppy’ enabled in BIOS.

Same ISO works when burned to a DVD and is bootable on same machine.

Hello Rick,

Now try to copy the dvd contents onto that Bootable USB. Not the ISO. The computer make is irrelevant in this question. It should work or something else is not as it should.

Hello Mrs V. If you have done everything correctly then when you have successfully booted from the Malware CD, then you should see the screen at this post: http://www.thecomputermanual.com/running-winpe-with-malwarebytes-cd/

In the picture you see which commands to run to start the necessary software for scanning your computer. In addition to successfully run through this process you need to read these other posts:

To burn the ISO you downloaded from the thecomputermanual.com you need to read this post: http://www.thecomputermanual.com/manipulating-cd-iso-and-dvd-iso/
To be able to start the computer from the burned CD you need to read this post: http://www.thecomputermanual.com/boot-order-boot-sequence-startup-order/

Good Luck.
