As a computer tweaker, I know how to do some things which reduce my work and also save my time.

For that, I always prefer installation of any “Operating System” using usb because usb is far more faster then CD, DVDs.

Today I will show how you too can make a bootable usb drive of Operating System or any other tool and boot your computer from that usb drive.

Before directly going to process, First I tell you about Rufus.

Rufus is a small & simple tool, but very excellent for Windows that handles a lot of work formatting USB drives and making them bootable. Most notably it can burn most ISO files to USB very efficiently.

The features of Rufus I liked most:

Burns any Windows ISO (XP, 7 or 8)
Burns any Linux-based ISO (ArchLinux, Ubuntu, Knoppix, etc)
Burns a number of handy ISOs (Hiren’s Boot CD, FreeDOS, BartPE, Ultimate Boot CD)
Handles UEFI as well as legacy booting
Handles GPT as well as MBR partition tables
Open source

Now, back to the process.

Below are the steps to follow for making a bootable USB drive using rufus.

  • First of all, Run rufus.
  • You will see the dialog box like below.
