Gone are the days when formatting your Windows seemed to be a herculean task. I still remember spending a few hundred bucks every time my system broke to just get it formatted. Well, that’s history now as formatting an OS is a cakewalk these days and you don’t even need CD or DVD disks containing the Windows 10 or Linux OS. You can easily format and install a brand new OS from using your USB drive (Pen Drive). A Bootable USB Drive is far more handy and practical than a disk drive.
Making a Bootable USB Drive isn’t a very difficult task. It can be done using the Windows command prompt too but that’s a bit cumbersome. I myself prefer a small software called Rufus which can be downloaded for free from here. You will also need the ISO file of the Windows 10 or the Linux OS which you wish to install and a USB drive (Pendrive) with enough storage to contain that OS.
Now follow these easy steps to make a Bootable Windows 10 USB Drive:
STEP 1: Download Rufus from here.
STEP 2: Insert the USB Drive (Pen Drive) in the USB Slot and format it or else it would eventually get formatted.
STEP 3: Open Rufus and click on the button as shown in the above image.
STEP 4: Go to the directory where you’ve kept the ISO file and select it. Here I’ve kept it on the desktop.
STEP 5: Press START as shown in the image.
Voila, it’s done. Now give it some time and in few minutes you’ll have a bootable Windows 10 or whatever OS you’ve chosen USB Drive (Pendrive). Do let us know if you face any problem during this process by posting your comments below.
