Create bootable USB drives the easy way
Rufus is a utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.
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
Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need!
Oh, and Rufus is fast. For instance it's about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool, on the creation of a Windows 7 USB installation drive from an ISO. It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USB from ISOs. (1)
A non exhaustive list of Rufus supported ISOs is also provided at the bottom of this page. (2)

Windows 7 or later, 32 or 64 bit doesn't matter. Once downloaded, the application is ready to use.
I will take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the translators who made it possible for Rufus, as well as this webpage, to be translated in various languages. If you find that you can use Rufus in your own language, you should really thank them!
Download the executable and run it – no installation is necessary.
The executable is digitally signed and the signature should state:
- "Akeo Consulting" (v1.3.0 or later)
- "Pete Batard - Open Source Developer" (v1.2.0 or earlier)
Notes on DOS support:
If you create a DOS bootable drive and use a non-US keyboard, Rufus will attempt to select a keyboard layout according to the locale of your system. In that case, FreeDOS, which is the default selection, is recommended over MS-DOS, as it supports more keyboard layouts.
Notes on ISO Support:
All versions of Rufus since v1.1.0 allow the creation of a bootable USB from an ISO image (.iso).
Creating an ISO image from a physical disc or from a set of files is very easy to do however, through the use of a CD burning application, such as the freely available CDBurnerXP or ImgBurn.

Since I'm getting asked about this on regular basis, there is no donation button on this page.
The main reason is that I feel that the donation system doesn't actually help software development and worse, can be guilt-inducing for users who choose not to donate.
Instead, I think that "mécénat"; or developer patronage, from companies which benefit most from a healthy FLOSS ecosystem, is what we should be aiming for. This is because, unless they are backed by a company, developers who want to provide quality Open Source software cannot realistically sustain full time development, no matter how generous their software users are.
Also, unless you are blocking them (hint, hint), you'll notice that there are ads on this page, which I consider sufficient revenue enough.
Finally the fact that I have the freedom to develop Free Software in my spare time should indicate that I'm well-off enough, and therefore that you should direct your generosity towards people who need it a lot more than I do. If you really insist, you can always make a donation to the Free Software Foundation, as they are the main reason software like Rufus is possible.
At any rate, I'll take this opportunity to say thank you for your continuing support and enthusiasm about this little program: it is much appreciated!
But please continue to feel free to use Rufus without any guilt about not contributing for it financially – you should never have to!

The USB drive is Easy to create, erase and reuse. Can install multiple OS on same USB at a time. Faster booting and installation speed. Portable and easy to handle.The type of bootable USB drive you are creating depends on the motherboard you are using.
- You need the ISO image file of the target operating system you want to install. That can be Windows 10, Windows 7 or any flavor of Linux like Ubuntu or Mint.
- If you don't have any, you can download the latest version of Windows 10 from Microsoft.
- Once you have the ISO image to start with, open any software from the list below.
- Insert the USB pen drive of minimum 4GB size.
- The bootable USB drive making software will automatically detect and list the drive. Make sure you select the correct drive as all the data on the drive will be destroyed.
- Now click on 'select' button and locate the ISO image file of the operating system from your hard drive.
- Select the appropriate option for partition scheme and other options and hit start. It will take around 15 minutes depending on your operating system size.
➤ Select 'MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI' from partition scheme and target system type.
➤ Keep the file system, cluster size as it is or you can change it to NTFS for Windows and exFAT for Linux.
➤ You can give an appropriate name to the resulting bootable drive.
➤ ISO image on your hard disk must be a valid bootable image because Rufus scans the image before you load it.
➤ Click the start button and wait for the process to complete. This may take up to 20 minutes.
➤ UEFI motherboards most of the time need 64 bit Windows. Else you will get 'Could not locate '\dfi\boot\bootx64.efi:  Not found' error. If you get this error, you just need 64 bit Windows version. The 7th generation Intel CPU does not support Windows 7 or older. You must have Windows 10.
➤ Select the ISO image file of OS you want to burn.
➤ Select 'GPT partition scheme for UEFI' from partition scheme and target system type.
➤ NTFS as the file system.If you create bootable USB using MBR scheme, you may get an error like 'Windows can not be installed. The partition is GPT type.Carefully check the options as above before you hit the start button. Once you have completed creating the bootable USB drive, its time to install the OS. For that, you have to boot from the USB drive.
- Restart your PC and press the key F12 or Delete depending upon the manufacturer of your PC. Sometimes this key may be different.
- Select USB drive as a first boot device from the boot menu.
Rufus is a simple and easy to use. It automatically detects your USB flash drive and capacity so you can easily identify which device you are formatting. The bootable USB drive can be created for newer hardware supporting UEFI or for legacy BIOS. You only have to select proper options from the list.
