Diskpart script fails

I have a diskpart script that used to work fine in XP. How I am trying it in Windows 7 and the cmd window appears for a nonsecond and the script was not run. I tried to add some 'pauses' in there to determine what happened, but that didn't help.

If I just type in the commands one line at a time using Recovery, CMD it works fine.

What can I do?

you need to split this to diskpart and a separate format task for legacy drives

for diskpart script use:
select disk 0
clean
create partition primary size=4000
assign letter=z
create partition primary
select partition 2
assign letter=c
active
list vol
exit

then create a bat script to run after that

format /q /y /fs:ntfs z:

format /q /y /fs:ntfs c:

  • for uefi use
    Select disk 0
    Clean
    Convert gpt
    Create partition efi size=4000
    Assign letter=z
    Format quick fs=FAT32
    Create partition msr size=128
    Create partition primary
    Assign letter=c
    Format quick fs=NTFS
    Exit - SMal.tmcc 8 years ago
  • and maybe all you need to do is add the FS=NTFS part to your existing script - SMal.tmcc 8 years ago

It looks like adding fs=NTFS to the format quick lines is working. I am not holding my breath yet, however.

Thanks.

  • since it supported under the uefi script it should work for either type of drives - SMal.tmcc 8 years ago
