Usually, when we cover creating bootable USB drives for Windows, we recommend the Windows 7 USB/DVD download Tool (time to lớn update that name Microsoft). Still, I’ve had some problems creating one và started looking for a different option.

So this time around, I thought I would try the không lấy phí utility called Rufus. Here’s a look at using it, & in the end, I had a faster experience using it than the older Microsoft tool.

Update: to get the ISO for the official release of Windows 10, head to this Microsoft page and tải về the 64 or 32-bit version of the media creation tool. It will allow you khổng lồ upgrade your Windows 7 SP 1 or Windows 8.1 PC or tải về the ISO khổng lồ use later for a clean install.

One of the first cool things about Rufus is that no installation is necessary, which means you can stick it on a network location or another external drive lớn run it. When you run it, setting it up is simple. Select the USB drive you want lớn use, select your partition scheme – it’s worth noting that Rufus also supports a bootable UEFI drive.

Then select the disc icon next to lớn the ISO drop-down và navigate to lớn the location of your official Windows 10 ISO.


In my experience, using the older USB 2.0 port và drive, it took less than five minutes to create the drive. If you use a USB 3.0 or 3.1 device, I would love to know how fast that works.

Anyway, after it’s created, you can go ahead & install the Windows 10 Technical Preview on a spare computer.

Let us know what you think of this tool over Microsoft’s Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool; for me, I will continue lớn use Rufus – at least until Microsoft updates or recreates a new utility – if it does at all.

And yes, of course, you can use this lớn create other versions of Windows or Linux distros from an ISO if you wish.
