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