    Creating Bootable Media


    Hi all,I have a quick question about creating a bootable usb stick.I am not to computer savvy so please bare with me.
    I read the tutorial on how to do it with the media creation tool.Went as planned,I guess,haven't used it yet but what I
    wanted to know is I removed the usb stick for later use,is it now bootable.I have a year old Dell laptop that I want to
    do a clean install on.Do I have to do anything else to the usb stick before I use it,thank-you,Tony.

    :)

    Multi-bootable USB

    Hey guys from TPU, couldn't find any specific thread pertaining to the question asked on title. As mentioned, I'm trying to create a bootable USB, but with many specifics boots available.

    I've been trying to create one with multiple boot device including one that enables me to run Windows 10 directly on the USB Thumb Drive but to no avail.

    The list of bootable images i'm trying to create are

    1. Windows 10 (A full OS running from thumb drive)
    2. Windows 10 ISO (Bootable disk image for fresh install)
    3. MemTest86+

    Have tried YUMI or UUI from the website USB PenDrive Linux but as this is my first time, i don't know how am i screwing up or am doing it right.. Anyone got a rough idea on a step by step guide? Thanks!
     
  3. Cannot create bootable media

    Hi Joe,

    Thank you for posting in Community, we understand your concern and we will try our best to help you resolve the issue.

    Before we proceed, I would like you to provide the information stated below:

    Did you receive any error message while trying to create the bootable media?

    I would suggest that you extract the files instead of copying it onto the bootable media. Once extracted, plug the media onto the system restart the computer and check if you are able to boot from it.

    Note: Once the media Is connected it is advised not to unplug it. Also the media should contain only the ISO in it.

    Hope this information helps.
