Many of us Linux users use dd to make a live usb and IIRC it will also work in Windows as well. Not very hard once you get the hang of it. Just cd to where your .iso is at and do a "sudo dd if="name of .iso" of=/dev/sdx" where "x" is the letter of the usb port where your install media will be at. Not sure what you'd call it in Windows though.

dd while the best and most efficient way is often scary for new users or those not familiar with drives and the terminal.

Gnome Multi Writer has worked fine in the past on Solus to write a USB, so should do on other OS's.

As a Windows 10 user , I thought about this before, but this does not seem to be a simple matter , to boot your computer with USB ,
i need a method to burn Windows IOS files to USB , But the cause of failure has always been here, Burning will cause a lot of data loss for us ,

I used 'woeusb' to make a bootable Windows 7 USB, which is in the software center.

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it woeusb
