Create A Bootable USB Drive from Windows 10/8/7/Vista ISO Image

If you don’t have a Windows installation DVD or either it is damaged, then you can create a bootable USB drive to install Windows on your PC. These days the optical drives are becoming something of a rarity and most netbooks, tablets and small laptops don’t come with a CD-ROM. It’s also more convenient to carry around a tiny USB drive than optical media.

As long as you have a copy of Windows 10/8/7/Vista ISO image, you can create a Windows installation USB drive in just a few steps. Here’s how.

  1. Download the freeware ISO2Disc on your computer and install it.
  2. Connect your USB drive that you want to use to install Windows and then run the ISO2Disc software.
  3. Click on Browse button to locate your Windows Installation ISO image.
  4. Choose the Burn to USB Flash Drive option. Select your USB drive from device list (if there are more than one connected USB devices).
  5. select the partition scheme as MBR(for Legacy BIOS/CSM boot), or GPT(required for UEFI boot).


  6. Click Start Burn and the drive will be formatted and the files copied over to the memory stick. After a few minutes your Windows bootable USB flash drive will be ready for installation.
  7. Reboot your PC and set the bootable flash drive as a first boot priority in the BIOS settings. Save the bios settings and reboot once again to continue with the Windows installation process.
