Rufus is a utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.

System Requirements:

Windows XP or later, 32 or 64 bit doesn't matter. Once downloaded, the application is ready to use.

Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool v1.0.30 00:08:10
Universal USB Installer v1.8.7.5 00:07:10
UNetbootin v1.1.1.1 00:06:20
RMPrepUSB v2.1.638 00:04:10
WiNToBootic v1.2 00:03:35
Rufus v1.1.1 00:03:25

RMPrepUSB can make a USB drive bootable, but some BIOSes may have problems. I recommend FlashBoot if you have a problem BIOS or need to create a USB drive that will boot on 99% of systems.

Easy2Boot Version 1 - Easy2Boot allows you to add ALL and ANY .iso, .img, .ima, .gz files , all Linux LiveCD ISOs and Windows Install ISOs (XP through to Server 2012) to your USB drive and boot from any of them. Just copy over your files and boot - no special utility required, no linux cheat codes, no special knowledge. Automatic menu system. Fully documented. You can install directly from an unmodified XP Install ISO to any AHCI/SATA/IDE/RAID/SCSI system too - no need for nLite! You can change the wallpaper, menu, change the language, text colours, etc. to suit you.

Universal USB Installer aka UUI is a Live Linux USB Creator that allows you to choose from a selection of Linux Distributions to put on your USB Flash Drive.

Easy2Boot is free for public use, but I kindly request that you make a donation to support this site.

Note: E2B supports UEFI multi-booting of linux, Windows and many others by using partition images. To create partition images, you will need to download the 'MPI Tool Pack' which includes the Windows MakePartImage script. Once you have created your .imgPTN image files directly from ISOs or existing USB drives, just copy the image files to any Easy2Boot menu folder (e.g. _ISO\MAINMENU or \_ISO\AUTO or \_ISO\LINUX, etc.)

 If you cannot boot from cdrom, please download bootdisk
