    Simply copy ISO image file from USB stick?


    Hello, can I simply copy a finished Windows 10 ISO file to a USB stick and then boot with it, or do I need software beforehand that makes the USB stick bootable with the ISO file?

    :)

    Need help. want to create bootable win7 64bit iso with usb-stick (using 32bit xp)

    I suggest you use HP USB Disk Storage Format to make your usb stick bootable like Bogmali said, download here HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool - v2.1.8 - SP27608.exe - EXTREME Overclocking Downloads

    Then copy ALL files from the iso to the formatted usb pen, i suggest you open the .iso file with Winrar and extract all files to the usb pen.

    Like Mussels said your PC should be set to boot from usb:
    1.On startup press F8 or whatever is the corresponding key on your keyboard for the boot options, or
    2.Enter BIOS (hit Del or F2...), go to Boot Priority and set your usb pen as primary boot device.
    F10 (save and exit),restart, you're good to go.

  3. Bootable USB with ISO - What am I missing?

    Have you copied all the files from the ISO to the flash drive? I can't see that step.


    After step 10. (after formatting and making it the active partition)

    Copy files from the ISO to flash drive.

    Open CMD as administrator.

    navigate to the flash drive, lets call it drive Z and type in the following commands.
    Z:
    cd boot
    bootsect.exe /nt60 z:
    exit


    Then try again.

    Need help. want to create bootable win7 64bit iso with usb-stick (using 32bit xp)

    What I did (which may involve searching for a trial version software):

    1. Format the USB drive with HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool (and make it bootable)
    2. Find a trial copy of ISO Buster and install in current PC.
    3. Open the Win7 ISO file with ISO Buster, copy and paste to the destination folder/drive.
    4. Make sure you copy and paste every file to include the boot image.
