How to create flash disk bootable

This process involves Windows command prompt  which is known as CMD.  You have to enter some CMD commands. CMD plays an important role in computer, For example cmd can be used to check the serial number of a computer, checking bios information etc. In this tutorial we are going to make flash disk bootable and this flash disk will help us during installation of any other operating system in a computer. Also apart from making flash disk bootable the same process can be used for repairing corrupted flash disk, Sd card e.t.c.  

Bootable process

Step: 1 Press Windows logo + X 

Step: 2 Then press A so as to run cmd administrator 

At the command prompt,

Step 3: Type Diskpart then press enter. Diskpart is command used for storage

Step 4: Type list Disk then press enter, The list disk command displays all the disks on the computer. Note the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive.

Step 5. Type select disk , example select disk 1 or select disk 2 

where X is the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive like select disk 1 or 2 3  you will realised at this point command prompt will displays all removable and internal storage. This can be used to check your actual internal storage of your pc which is disk 0. 

DO NOT TYPE SELECT DISK 0 Otherwise, you may format your internal hard drive.

Step 6:. Type clean, and the press enter. This command deletes all data from the USB flash drive.

Step 7: Now we need to create a new primary partition on the USB flash drive, Type create part pri, and then press enter.

Step 8. To select the partition that you just created in step 7 above, Type select part 1 and then and press enter.

Step: 9 To format the partition, Type format fs=fat32 quick, and then press enter. fs=ntfs quick if you want to transfer large files
Step: 10. Type active, and then press enter.

Step: 11 Type exit, and then press enter.

8. Type again exit and then click enter.

9. Now your flash disk is bootable you can copy your installation files and proceed. 

More command  and parameters that you should also know

The diskpart tool has the following commands and parameters available:

  • select can set the focus on a specific target.
  • select disk – use this command to set the focus on a specific disk. Command Prompt: select disk

Implementation and evaluation of an arduino based automatic weather station

1 Background

A weather station is that facility on land which has the instruments and devices for observing and measuring atmospheric parameters to provide the information for weather forecast

Weather monitoring is of great importance because it affects many human activities. The study of day-to –day weather requires connection of a couple of instruments together to form a weather station.

A weather station is an observation post where weather conditions and meteorological data are observed and recorded.

Weather forecasting and monitoring is therefore the application of science in predicting the atmospheric conditions of any place. Weather forecasting is done through collection of quantitative and qualitative data of the prevailing state of atmosphere at any given place.

Modern weather station is automated weather stations which are updated versions of common weather stations which have been in existence for centuries. This project seeks to implement a simple micro-controller based display weather station that measures rainfall amount, wind speed and evaporation rate. It will be developed by using Arduino Uno, LCD display, transmitter type IR sensor and ultrasonic water level sensor. A sensor is used for monitoring a real world physical conditions or variables such as wind speed, rainfall amount, and evaporation rate.

An automated weather station is used to minimize human effort. This project will implement and evaluate an Arduino based automatic weather station using an embedded system to monitor the weather parameters through sensors.

Getting more information on the atmosphere, more frequently and from more locations was determined to be one of the key elements to improving forecast and warning. Thus, automatic weather observing system (AWOS) was developed.

Many sensors that make up an AWOS detect different weather elements and can update the official weather observation many times during one hour. The purposes of the automatic weather station are such that they are used for increasing the number and reliability of surface observations. They do this by;

1. Increasing the reliability of the measurements by using the sophisticated technology and modern digital measurement techniques.

2. Satisfying new observation needs and requirements.

3. Reducing human errors.

Weather monitoring has been very important to man over centuries. Weather parameters are the basic tools that can be used to predict the weather.

Typical weather stations have the following instruments;

1. Thermometer for measuring air temperature

2. Barometer for measuring atmospheric pressure

3. Hygrometer for measuring humidity

4. Anemometer for measuring the wind speed

5. Wind vane sensor for measuring wind direction

6. Rain gauge for measuring liquid precipitation over a set period.

Automatic weather station is small in size and easy to install and they also save man power.

The proposed system measures the real time weather parameters automatically.

Navigation Drawer for an Android App with source code

Navigation Drawer for an Android App with source code In this post, you’ll figure out how to show navigationdrawer in Android in kotlin language. We’ll cover how to utilize the.
DrawerLayout and NavigationView if you are new to Android Development this post will make you understand some of structure used in Android programming.
 The image below is an example of navigation drawer,  The user can view the navigation drawer when they touch menu icon.
How to add Navigation Drawer in Android, follow the steps below
#1. Open blank activity
Launch android studio and give your first application any name
After creating process has finished you can see project structure as shown in the image below.

#1 Adding dependencies .
This are found in build.gradle located in the following directory after android studio is launched           /app/build.gradle before we add any code to build.gradle let’s discuss few things about dependencies.
1. What are dependencies ?
2. Why do we add dependencies ?
In Android Studio, dependencies allows us to include external library or local jar files or other library modules in our Android project.
Example: Suppose I want to show some images in ImageView. But I’m using Glide Library to enhance the smoothness of application. So I have to add a dependency in the build.gradle(Module App) as:
compile ‘com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:3.7.0’
So Now I can use Glide library 🙂 and show my images. This makes it easy to manage external libraries in your project. To learn more about dependencies check here
Now open build.gradle file and add the following code below. [module-239]

apply plugin: ''
apply plugin: 'kotlin-android'
apply plugin: 'kotlin-android-extensions'
android {
    compileSdkVersion 27
    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "com.eufetresources.androidnavigationdrawer"
        minSdkVersion 15
        targetSdkVersion 27
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
        testInstrumentationRunner ""
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), ''
dependencies {
    implementation fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    implementation ''
    implementation ''
    implementation ''
    testImplementation 'junit:junit:4.12'
    androidTestImplementation ''
    androidTestImplementation ''
Step 3. Create “drawer_view.xml” menu
Create first “Android Resource directory” and give it a name menu in the following directory /app/src/main/res/  then create resource file “drawer_view.xml” inthe follow directory /app/src/main/res/manu.
Then add the following code,


            android:title=”Profile” />
            android:title=”Wallet” />
            android:title=”Offers” />
            android:title=”Setting” />

Once the above code is added you will realized the following code has an error android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher_round" this can only be fixed by adding image icon named ic_launcher in drawable directory.  app/src/main/res/drawable/
You can download icon here Material icon download link: and add to (app/src/main/res/drawable/      )   directory.

Adding code in  “activity_main.xml” layout file
Open activity_main,xml file and ad the follow code.



            android:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark.ActionBar" />

        app:menu="@menu/drawer_view" />

Setting App Theme
 Open your “values/style.xml” and set the app theme
such as Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar: 


Adding code to MainActivity.kt
Now open MainActivity.kt file and add the following code.

package `com.eufetresource.androidnavigationdrawer
import android.os.Bundle
import android.view.MenuItem
import android.widget.Toast
class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {
    private lateinit var mDrawerLayout: DrawerLayout
    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        val toolbar: Toolbar = findViewById(
        val actionbar: ActionBar? = supportActionBar
        actionbar?.apply {
        mDrawerLayout = findViewById(
        val navigationView: NavigationView = findViewById(
        navigationView.setNavigationItemSelectedListener { menuItem ->
            // set item as selected to persist highlight
            menuItem.isChecked = true
            // close drawer when item is tapped
            // Handle navigation view item clicks here.
            when (menuItem.itemId) {
       -> {
                    Toast.makeText(this, "Profile", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()
       -> {
                    Toast.makeText(this, "Wallet", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()
       -> {
                    Toast.makeText(this, "Offer", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()
       -> {
                    Toast.makeText(this, "Setting", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()
            // Add code here to update the UI based on the item selected
            // For example, swap UI fragments here
    //appbar - toolbar button click
    override fun onOptionsItemSelected(item: MenuItem): Boolean {
        return when (item.itemId) {
   -> {
            else -> super.onOptionsItemSelected(item)

How to Install a Windows Operating System in any laptop

Installing Windows may sound like an overwhelming  yet it’s actually very simple, if you’re installing  Windows 10, Windows 8 or Windows 7. You don’t need to take your computer to any experts for a simple reinstallation,  you can install Windows by yourself. In this tutorial i will explain the installation process of Windows. 

There are three question to be asked during Windows installation, Why do we install Windows, how to install Windows and where to install Windows.

Why do we install Windows?

1. We install Windows when it has affected by virus e.g shortcuts virus. But it is recommended to run latest anti-virus in your system.

2. If you want to creating partition specified amount of space in drive C, this means drive C should not contain any important files ,

NOTE Please make sure to back up all of your important data before proceeding with this installation . You can use external storage for a backup.

3. For upgrading,  e.g Windows 7 to Windows 8. or 8 to 10

Note: Before upgrading, check to make sure your PC meets the system requirements . For example If your device does not meet requirements for Windows 10, you may not have the great experience intended with Windows 10 and might want to consider purchasing a new computer.

Windows 10 Requirements

You can also go to the PC manufacturer’s website for any additional info about updated drivers and hardware compatibility.

4. Changing 64-bit or 32-bit processor (CPU) , for example 32bit(×86) and 64bit(64) To check this on your PC, go to PC info in PC settings or you can search for System type.

System type.

5. Slow start up. Sometimes slow start up can be affected by virus.

You can also disable start-up program prom task manager

6. Less responsive programs.

7. Hdd hard disk replacement.

If your computer experiences signs of hard drive failure, it’s best to replace it before it completely wears out. An this will need windows installation if you were to buy a new hard disk. The hard drive in your computer stores all of your files and the operating system, which is essential to using the computer. Computers can turn on and display the system BIOS screens without a hard drive, so removing the drive doesn’t damage anything — it just renders the computer useless. You will not be able to launch windows.

How to install Windows

Before you install window there are few things that I have highlighted below.


1. Os (operating system) that is Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 and this can be downloaded from Here .

2. Set your computer to boot from DVD or USB.

For you to install window you need to have a bootable device such as flash disk. I have done this since 2013 and found flask disk is the best atleast 8GB because all operating system are more than 4GB size.

Step 3 – Choose the Windows 10 clean install option
