Rufus is an utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.

 

It can be especially useful for cases where:

    you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)
    you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
    you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
    you want to run a low-level utility

Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need!

Oh, and Rufus is fast. For instance it's about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool, on the creation of a Windows 7 USB installation drive from an ISO. It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USB from ISOs. (1)
A non exhaustive list of Rufus supported ISOs is also provided at the bottom of this page.

 

System Requirements:

Windows XP or later, 32 or 64 bit doesn't matter. Once downloaded, the application is ready to use.

I will take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the translators who made it possible for Rufus, as well as this webpage, to be translated in various languages. If you find that you can use Rufus in your own language, you should really thank them

 

Fast - FREE - Small - and if you need help to use all info is contained in Links on his PAGE.

It is a nice little tool for people who don't like opening command window, and are unfamiliar with diskpart.  You do need to be careful though; I trashed a thumb drive with it one time.

I have 2 x SanDisk (8 & 16Gb) + 1 Lexar 8 Gb and works on all, but normally just extract the Windows ISOs with PowerISO, since once the flashdrives are marked active, they stay that way even after formatting until marked inactive.
