  1. How to create a truly bootable USB off of windows ISO?


    First of all - how difficult to get support from Microsoft these days - incredible that there is no real time support available, with a phone line that directs to the website that directs here.In any case - I've downloaded the Microsoft Windows 10 ISO, and tried about 10 times with different methodologies to create a bootable disk. I'm able to mount the ISO, but it never boots. I have a machine running linux and it always defaults back to linux when I choose the usb as a booting medium. I've formatted as FAT32, exFAT, I've formatted and mounted the USB disk on Linux and Mac both, sometimes

    :)

    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!

    Bootable USB to ISO

    He's not trying to make a bootable USB. He wants to restore the ISO from the bootable USB (the reverse operation).



    What software are you trying to restore? You can get the Windows 7 ISOs from Digital River: http://social.technet.microsoft.com...c99-42db-80c8-6300f01f7aae/windows-7downloard

    Bootable USB with ISO - What am I missing?

    I am trying to install win7 from a USB. I set the USB to be first boot and it finds it, but wont install the iso.

    I have tried ...

    However when I get to bootsect it does not do anything .. says it is not a recognized internal command ...

    Is there something I am missing? I even tried just loading the iso on the USB and booting, but did not work either

    Is there an easier way?
