Creating boot media with Windows 10 ISO
To create a bootable media using a Windows 10 ISO file that you already have, connect a USB flash drive of at least 8GB of space, and use these steps:
- Open Rufus download page.
- Under the “Download” section, click the latest release of the tool to save the file on your device.
- Double-click the Rufus-x.x.exe file to launch the tool.
- Under the “Device” section, select the USB flash drive with at least 8GB of space.
- Under the “Boot selection” section, click the Select button on the right.
- Select the Windows 10 ISO file from its folder location.
- Click the Open button.
- Use the “Image option” drop-down menu to select the Standard Windows installationoption.
- Use the “Partition scheme” drop-down menu to select the GPT option.
- Use the “Target system” drop-down menu to select the UEFI (non CSM) option.
- Under the “Show Advanced drive properties” section, leave the default settings.
- Under the “Volume label” field, enter a descriptive name for the drive — for example, “win10_1903_usb.”
- Under the “File system” and “Cluster size” section, leave the default settings.
- Click the Show advanced format options button.
- Select the “Quick format” and “Create extended label and icon files” options.
- Click the Start button.
- Click the OK button to confirm.
- Click the Close button.
After you complete the steps, Rufus will create a bootable USB flash drive to install Windows 10 with the image that you provided.
