Rufus USB is a handy windows tool for creating bootable drives. It’s a small program that converts a normal flash drive into a complete bootable USB from which you can directly start in command prompt.

Additionally the tool is small, free, easy to use and very user friendly. I largely use it to create a bootable USB drive for Windows setup. Once or twice i used it also for Linux setup. It is written in C and developed by Pete Batard of Akeo Consulting.

These Steps will help you create the bootable usb drive

Download the ISO image of Windows or Linux operating system version of your choice

After running the programme in Drive Properties go to Select and pick your ISO image from the location where you saved it.

Under Format Options you can choose the Volume label you would want. Or more easily stick with the default name. Ensure the file format is selected depending on your installation type.

When you are ready hit the start button. Warning: You will lose all current data in the usb drive.

Wait a few minutes as the Rufus USB program prepares your usb stick for bootable ability
