How to create a bootable USB drive for Windows 10 ?
Windows 10 is set to be released later this month. The OS will be available on flash drives, however, if you want to create your own bootable USB drive for Windows 10, you can do that pretty easily. Here’s how to:
The easy way
There’s always an “easy way” to do things on Windows using some kind of software. Creating a bootable USB drive is also pretty easy – here’s how to do it:
Download Rufus from here
Click and Open rufus.exe
Once the user interface of the software opens up, plug-in your USB
After that, look for the “Create a bootable USB drive option” and from the drop-down, select an ISO Image
Then, click on the button next to the dropdown and select the Windows 10 ISO that you want to install
Lastly, click on “Start” and wait for the software to create the bootable USB drive.
That’s pretty much it. You now have a bootable USB drive, just plug it in your device and make sure your BIOS is all setup and you should now be able to easily install Windows 10 using the bootable USB drive that you just created.
The hard way
If you don’t want to use any software, there’s another way of creating a bootable USB drive, but that’s a bit trickier. Here’s how to do it:
First, make sure your USB drive is plugged in
Search and open Command Prompt as an administrator
Next, you’ll have to open the disk management utility using CMD (Command Prompt) – to do that, type in diskpart and hit enter
After that, you will have to display the connected disks that are available – to do that, type in list disk and hit enter
Then, you’ll need to select your USB drive – to do that, type select disk # and hit enter – you’ll have to replace the # with your disk number
Next, you’ll have to clean the USB drive – to do that, type clean and hit enter
Then you’ll need to create a bootable partition – type in create partition primary and hit enter
You will now need to select the partition that you just created. To do that, type in select partition 1.
After that, type active and hit enter
Next, you’ll need to format the USB drive – just type in format fs=fat32 and hit enter
You’ll now need to assign your USB drive a letter, to do that, just type in assign
Lastly, copy all the Windows 10 files and paste it inside the USB drive. (You can copy the files by extracting an ISO or copy it from a Windows 10 disk).
That’s it! You have just manually created a Windows 10 bootable USB drive and it’s ready to install Windows 10 on your device.
Creating a bootable USB drive is pretty easy, to be honest. I’d recommend following the easy way of creating the bootable USB drive if you’re not an expert – however, if you’re an expert, just follow the hard way of creating the bootable USB drive and avoid using any type of software.
If you want to upgrade to Windows 10 on your PC or tablet, here’s the minimum hardware you’ll need. Read further below to learn about the additional factors that impact upgradeability. For more information about the free upgrade offer1, please visit the Windows 10 Upgrade page for details.
