Does anyone know how to make a bootable Windows drive with a Cruzer 32 GB disk?

You cannot boot off a usb drive that has more than 2 gb capacity. If it is to be bootable it must be formatted with FAT 16 file system which has a 2 gb size limit, otherwise the computer will not recognize the flash drive as bootable.

FWIW  I have a 16GB Cruzer that I boot my BartPE system from. And the Cruzer is formated as NTFS to support backup files larger than 4GB.  So I would have to say that it is definitely possible.

 

Check out a tool named RMPrepUSB.

This is very incorrect.
