Bootable Flash Drive - install Windows from USB

Weird error messages appear on the computer screen? The equipment suddenly started working much slower? Install a fresh copy of your operating system - simple solutions are often best. But how to do this without a CD/DVD drive? Just a flash drive.

What's a bootable flash drive?

A bootable flash drive is a USB flash drive that starts automatically when the computer starts up. Enables fast and efficient installation of Windows. The small gadget is handy, lightweight and capacious - a simpler and more convenient way than a traditional DVD. It is also supported by the data reading speed - it is much better than that of traditional optical media.

Modern equipment, e.g. ultrabooks, no longer have a DVD drive - but it turns out to be redundant. The use of a flash drive is a necessity in this situation. You can install the operating system quickly and easily from your flash drive - whether on your laptop, ultrabook or desktop computer. But how to record Windows on a flash drive without risk?

A tool to create bootable flash drive

What will you need? Only a Windows computer and a flash drive with a minimum capacity of 8 GB. For an older version of Windows, a 4 GB flash is sufficient. Importantly, your flash drive will be formatted, so before you start, check what's on it and copy the data to a safe place so you don't lose it.

From the official Microsoft website, download a tool to create a bootable flash drive - once you run it, the process of preparing individual elements will begin. You will start downloading files and saving them to USB. Setup does not take long - after a few minutes you will see a message that "Your flash USG is ready", which means that you can start installing the system. The automatic application downloads the files itself and creates a bootable flash drive - by far the easiest way.
