Install Windows 10/Windows 11 from a boot stick

Open a command prompt and run the commands below. The following solution will support USB sticks with up to 32GB. Caution, this will erase all data on the selected disk.

lis dis
sel dis # where # is the number of the disk you want to format. Think twice before the next step
cre par pri
sel par 1
format quick fs=fat32


Double-click the iso and copy the content to the stick. You will not be able to copy the install.wim since it’s too large. Split it with dism:

Dism /Split-Image /ImageFile:h:\sources\install.wim /SWMFile:d:\sources\install.swm /FileSize:3800
