Gone are the days of traditional CDs and DVDs, as most modern computers now come without a CD/DVD drive. Fortunately, there are several freeware tools available online that allow you to create a bootable USB flash drive from an ISO file. ISO2Disc is a reliable option that not only supports creating bootable CDs/DVDs from Windows ISOs but also allows you to create bootable USB flash drives and Windows To Go USB drives.
Microsoft has also recognized the need for modern users to create bootable media and has developed the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. This official tool enables you to create bootable CDs/DVDs and USB flash drives from ISO files. While it was initially launched with the release of Windows 7, it continues to support the latest Windows 11/10 operating system. However, it does not include the Windows To Go feature.
For those who prefer to use an official Microsoft tool rather than a third-party application, the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool is a great choice. It was originally called the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool but was later renamed to avoid confusion for Windows 8/8.1 users. With these free tools, you can easily create bootable USB flash drives or CDs/DVDs for your Windows operating system needs.
