Create a Bootable Windows USB
Rufus is a great utility tool to use when you want to make your USB bootable and the best thing about Rufus is its quick, free, portable and easy to use.
So, this is a tutorial about to show you how you can make your USB bootable by this software and we made it simpler for you to do it easily by yourself.
Rufus can easily create bootable USB’s for most bootable ISO, including among others:
- Windows 7
- Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
- Windows 10
Things you will need:
- Your bootable ISO of choice. I will be using a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 ISO (If you have a Windows 7 disk, then you can create your own bootable ISO easily).
- Latest version of Rufus (I am using version 2.2).
- A spare USB stick (The size of the USB required will vary depending on the size of the ISO you are using).
Once you have the required items, you can start by opening up Rufus. Don’t worry about any of the settings here as Rufus will automatically do this for you depending on the type of ISO you are using.
Step 1: Select your USB drive letter in which you wanted your iso image for boot transformation and normally it’s selected automatically.
Step 2: If your USB isn’t automatically selected or maybe showing some other removable drive that means your computer is connected with more than one USB and you will have to select the particular one by manually.
Step 3: After that click on the CD drive icon and select your iso image which you want to transfer into your USB device. Click Open at just right after selecting your iso image.
Step 4: Now, click on start button to start this ISO boot files transformation process and after that click on the OK button of warning confirmation message.
Step 5: Click on Close button just after when it completes the ISO copying process.
