Create bootable USB drives the easy way. You can do so with Rufus 3.12. Rufus is a nifty little program you can use to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.). Despite its small size (1.1 MB), Rufus provides everything you need!

It can be especially useful for cases where:

  • you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, 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
