    Us Need some quick help with WBSF Manager

    I have a kingston flashdrive and want to use it with the usb loader. However i just realize you cannot establish a partition on a flashdrive with window(s) because it is viewed as a removable disk. Do anyone know of any software that will allow partitioning flashdrives

    Because wbfs wont let you format it without the drive being partitioned. Everytime i try to use wbfs, i go to the drive letter the flashdrive is on, then wbfs says it cant/wont because it hasnt been partitioned.

    Also if you try to use a flashdrive it wont be primary and active because it is a removable flashdrive, and isnt seen as a external hard drive ie. not like a hdd. I know of one program bootit. It will allow the flashdrive to be switched to a nonremovable backup, but it doesnt recognize kingston brand.

    no not a program.. theres a guide, "hitachi driver trick computer fixed drive" - try googling that? its not too complicated.. you change something in your computer, its been awhile lol.. and then you change the driver of your usb or sd card
