What application do you usually use when creating a Bootable USB from an ISO file?, is it Rufus? Of course, Rufus is the most frequently heard and the most widely used, but did you know that there are other alternative applications that you can also use, and here WinPoin will summarize the 5 best USB Bootable Applications according to WinPoin.
Media Creation Tools (Microsoft)
If you want to make Windows 10 Bootable, then of course a Microsoft product called Media Creation Tools is one application that you should try.
In addition to being able to download Windows 10 ISO files for us to save to the Storage we have, we can also create Bootable Windows directly with a very high guarantee of success, but unfortunately during this process we need an internet connection because the Bootable created will be made from an ISO file. which is downloaded first from the Microsoft site.
You can download the Media Creation Tools on the page following.
The drawback?, you can only create a Windows 10 bootable USB, for Linux, unfortunately you can’t.
Well, this one is definitely familiar, Rufus is one of the best Bootable USB Creator applications, this is because there are many important features in Rufus, for example, the Windows 11 Bypass System Requirement feature which is very useful for many people.
Besides being able to create Bootable Windows, you can also create other Bootable OS such as Linux using Rufus.
You can download Rufus from the page following. Or read too Did you know, Rufus is also available on the Microsoft Store!
Etcher or balenaEtcher is an alternative application that is also my favorite to use, especially if you are a Linux user, because Etcher is not only available for Windows, but for Linux and MacOS as well.
Now if you are a Linux or MacOS user, then you must try this balenaEtcher, guys, but of course when compared to Rufus, for Windows, this balenaEtcher is still quite far away because it has features that are not as complete as Rufus.
You can download Etcher on the page following.
Besides rufus, on Windows there is one other application that caught my attention enough for me to try, and that is WinSetupFromUSB.
WinSetupFromUSB itself has a pretty friendly interface with features similar to rufus, although when you first try it, it feels quite foreign, especially if you are familiar with Rufus or when compared to Etcher which looks simpler.
You can download WinSetupFromUSB from the page following.
Now, of the four applications above, of course the one I recommend the most is Rufus (if you are a Windows user), because with Rufus, we can get more complete features, one of which is Windows 11 Bypass System Requirements support, but if you are a Linux user or MacOS, then Etcher is worth a try too.
Meanwhile, you can also use Media Creation Tools or WinSetupFromUSB for alternatives in case Rufus doesn’t run properly.
So what do you think? what is your favorite bootable usb application? comment below guys.
