Creating a Bootable USB Disk for Windows

Creating a Bootable USB Disk for Windows

If you are a regular use of Windows Operating System platform, very likely you must have faced the issue of the OS getting crashed and then refusing to reboot. Well, to deal with such a situation, a USB bootable disk drive could be very handy. 

Why is USB better than DVD? You may have noticed that when you used your computer for the first time, the Windows suggested you to make a DVD backup so that you could reinstall the OS whenever you wanted to. However, a lot of people are using the compact laptops or notebooks which do not have the DVD drives. But all of them certainly have the USB connectivity. Also, USB drives are easier to carry and use. So creating a USB backup is better than DVD backup. 

You will need to create the backup when the Windows is working. If your OS has crashed and you did not take the backup, you could use someone else’s computer which has active Windows OS.

To get started, you will first need to download the Windows ISO file. It is also known as the image file. This image file is actually the virtual copy of the DVD for the installation of Windows. You don’t need a product key to download it on your computer. It is available for free. You will need to explore Windows’ website to find the right ISO file for your operating system (Windows 7 and 8).

After that, you will need to download the DVD/USB tool for windows. You will just need to follow some simple instructions and your bootable USB will be ready.
