Bootable USB Creator is free software that offers you a simple way to create a bootable USB drive in Windows. You can use it to install or upgrade Windows, fix a broken configuration, test out a specific Windows desktop or boot into Windows from a borrowed machine. It assists beginner users that struggle with the challenging manual process.
Bureausoft Corporation has developed the software for Windows 7 up to Windows 10. You can download it for free in English. Other alternatives to consider are Windows Bootable Image Creator, UltraISO and USB AutoRun Creator.
When you make a USB bootable, it deletes all its current data. With Bootable USB Creator, you can use a large USB drive, keep your data and use the empty storage space for your ISO file. This software won’t format the drive before creating the ISO file. When selecting the USB drive at startup, the PC will boot into Windows from the device.
Since it uses native code, creating the bootable drive is faster than with other tools such as Windows Media Creation Tool and the USB Flash Drive Format Tool. The utility can also fix corrupted Master Boot Records (MBR) in the first sector of the USB drive.
Bootable USB uses
A bootable USB drive is handy if you experience significant issues with your operating system and need a way to perform a clean install or reinstall. IT staff can use these drives if they have to upgrade many computers. Since they don’t have to download the Windows installation file to every computer, it saves them time.
IT technicians also use bootable drives to repair broken configurations or if they need to test out different desktop experiences. Additionally, if you need to work away from home and use an internet cafe or borrow a computer, you can use the bootable drive to boot into Windows.
Simple and fast
Bootable USB Creator is simple and faster than other similar tools since it uses native code. A great feature is the ability to use a large USB drive while being able to keep your current data. The software is a user-friendly way for beginners to create a bootable USB drive since the manual process can be challenging.
The developer has added the option to use a USB to create a bootable drive without deleting the current data. It now also supports Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 installations and Windows 11 for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
