A Disk Read Error Occurred Windows 10Windows 7: Made bootable USB but getting "Disk read error" at boot time, why? 17 Oct 2011 #1 Corazon Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit
A Disk Read Error Occurred Laptop1,785 posts Fantasyland Made bootable USB but getting "Disk read error" at boot time, why? Would greatly appreciate some help trying to create a bootable system on my 16GB USB stick. Here's what I did: In Diskpart: clean to http://www.howtogeek.com/forum/topic/disk-read-error-occurred-message-how-do-i-fix-this wipe the USB stick clean create partition primary offset=32 align=32 to create a fresh partition starting at sector 64 (rather than 63) active to make it bootable Next, I formatted it as NTFS with a 32KB cluster size. I then used bootsect /nt60 U: /mbr (where U: is my USB stick) to write boot code compatible with Vista/7's bootmgr. I extracted the contents of a known working WinPE .iso image to the USB stick which placed a bootmgr and Boot\BCD in its http://www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/192425-made-bootable-usb-but-getting-disk-read-error-boot-time-why.html root. After restarting my computer, USB stick (which is set to #1 in BIOS boot order) is briefly accessed but almost immediately the message Disk read error. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to reboot appears. Did I miss a step, or what did I do wrong? Could the partition offset or cluster size be the reason? Please note, I want to do the process manually and don't want to use tools like the HP USB format tool or anything like that, because they'll invariably place the partition at sector 63 which I'm trying to avoid for performance reasons.
