Create bootable USB drives the easy way




Rufus is a utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.
It can be especially useful for cases where:

  • you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)
  • you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
  • you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
  • you want to run a low-level utility
Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need!

System Requirements:

Windows XP or later, 32 or 64 bit doesn't matter. Once downloaded, the application is ready to use.

Download: https://rufus.akeo.ie/downloads/rufus-2.12.exe

Download the executable and run it – no installation is necessary.
The executable is digitally signed and the signature should state:

  • "Akeo Consulting" (v1.3.0 or later)
  • "Pete Batard - Open Source Developer" (v1.2.0 or earlier)
Notes on DOS support:

If you create a DOS bootable drive and use a non-US keyboard, Rufus will attempt to select a keyboard layout according to the locale of your system. In that case, FreeDOS, which is the default selection, is recommended over MS-DOS, as it supports more keyboard layouts.

Notes on ISO Support:

All versions of Rufus since v1.1.0 allow the creation of a bootable USB from an ISO image (.iso).
Creating an ISO image from a physical disc or from a set of files is very easy to do however, through the use of a CD burning application, such as the freely available CDBurnerXP or ImgBurn.

Notes on UEFI & GPT support:

Since version 1.3.2, Rufus support UEFI as well as GPT for installation media, meaning that it will allow you to install Windows 7, Windows 8 or Linux in full EFI mode.
However, Windows Vista or later is required for full UEFI/GPT support. Because of OS limitations, Windows XP restricts the creation of UEFI bootable drives to MBR mode.

A little question, I have .iso file of Windows 10 how can I create a bootable usb with rufus? I am a little confused. Also once the bootable usb is created, can we use the same pen drive to store other data?

Yes you can use for storing data also, if there is enough space for storing data.
Check Rufus site for creating bootable usb.. Google it.
I always keep data on bootable USB, I made copy of office 16 iso and Windows iso file in USB by creating seperate folder or main directory.
