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.
Follow the steps as shown in above picture.
Step 1: Attache your USB Drive (Pen drive or any USB drive) to computer, Rufus will show your USB drive in “Device” section at the top of the Rufus Application (as shown in Step 1 in picture).Choose the USB Drive. This is shown as NO_LABEL in Rufus but your USB Drive may have different name.
Note: Leave all the settings as it’s defaults as the settings are not intended for beginners.
Step 2: After selecting your USB device, Click on a small icon as shown in picture above at Step 2, New dialog box will open-up for selecting an ISO image of desired Operating System/Tool you want to add in your Usb Drive. Select the ISO Image and click ok as shown in picture below.
Step 3: Press ‘Start’ to let Rufus burn the ISO. Once Rufus is finished you can reboot your PC and choose your phone from your bios to boot off of your newly burned ISO. Enjoy!
