Rufus: Create USB sticks with ISO boot capabilities


Program with the help of which we can make bootable USB disks from ISO images. 

Of course, if you have an ISO image, then you could burn it to a CD or DVD, but that won't help much if the computer you want to run the image on doesn't have a CD-DVD Drive. In addition USBs are much easier to transport, will hardly be damaged and of course are much faster.

It can be especially useful for cases where: you want to create USB installation media from bootable ISO images (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.) you want to work on a system that does not have an operating system installed you want to flash BIOS or other DOS firmware you want to run a low-level utility.

Despite the small size of the application, Rufus provides everything you need! One advantage of Rufus is that it is quite fast. For example, it is about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer

Also. Rufus is also marginally faster when creating a Linux bootable USB from an ISO image. The list of ISO formats supported by Rufus can be found at the bottom of the page.

Rufus does not require any installation, and will automatically detect your USB drive. If you need more options it allows you to configure how the USB drive should be formatted (file system, size and so on), the program even includes some options that may help you to recognize your applications on older computers , (although usually these options are not necessary).
