When you install the operating system you must use a bootable device. Usually, you can use a DVD or USB to install Windows, but these days the USB device is more convenient and popular.
Once you have the ISO image file with the operating system, you must create a bootable USB device with a special software. This can be done by anyone with a few simple steps. I present you different methods to create a bootable USB.
Method 1: Using Rufus
Start Rufus and make sure that the USB is selected. Rufus is my favorite tool because it detects automatically the USB device.
Then select the ISO file from hard drive.
Then click Start and will create your bootable USB.
Read the message and click OK. It will delete all data from that USB.
When you start the computer, if the BIOS is set to boot from USB first time, then you will be prompted to install the operating system.
- in BIOS settings make sure to put higher priority for USB at the boot order.
