How To Create Windows 10 Bootable
To create a bootable Windows 10 USB drive, you will need a USB flash drive with at least 8GB of storage and a copy of the Windows 10 installation media.
Here are the steps to create a bootable Windows 10 USB drive:
- Download the Windows 10 ISO file from Microsoft’s website:
- Go to the Windows 10 download page at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
- Click the “Download tool now” button and save the ISO file to your computer.
- Insert the USB flash drive into your computer.
- Open the USB flash drive in File Explorer.
- Create a new folder on the USB flash drive and name it “Windows 10”.
- Right-click on the ISO file and select “Mount”. This will mount the ISO file as a virtual DVD drive.
- Open the virtual DVD drive and copy all of the files and folders to the “Windows 10” folder on the USB flash drive.
- Open the “Windows 10” folder on the USB flash drive and delete the “ei.cfg” file. This file is used to specify which version of Windows should be installed, and deleting it will allow you to install any version of Windows 10.
- Close all windows and eject the USB flash drive.
Your USB flash drive is now bootable and can be used to install Windows 10 on a computer. To boot from the USB drive, you will need to change the boot order in the BIOS or UEFI settings of your computer. Consult the documentation for your computer or motherboard for instructions on how to do this.
