Rufus


 


Create bootable USB drives the easy way. Rufus is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys, memory sticks, etc.


 


It can be especially useful for cases where:


  • You need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, etc.)
  • you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
  • you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
  • you want to run a low-level utility

Now in order to install Windows 7, 8, 10 using this USB drive, your motherboard must support booting from USB drives.

Clicking the icon beside this option and select the .ISO installation file of Windows you which to install.


Then click on “Start†button below. The process will start and finish quickly.


 


Some Computer has Option to temporary boot from Cd/HDD/Floppy/USB Device, Press the appropriate key – often F8, F11 or F12, to get Boot Menu and now choose the USB hard drive.


 


Alternatively, go to your CMOS options of your motherboard by pressing F2 or Del key and under Boot options, make booting from USB hard drive as the priority. Press ESC, choose save settings, and exit.


 


You PC or laptop should now automatically boot from USB drive and start giving you the options to install your Windows.

Quite simply I downloaded it from microsoft and then used winrar to put it onto my usb drive works fine, managed to upgrade 4 laptops that way instead of downloading from MS each time and I still have the folders on my usb drive.

Once you have upgraded, you can perform a clean install ... These instructions show you how to create a bootable flash drive, which you will need to perform a clean install.
