Rufus: How to Create a Bootable USB Flash Drive

How to use Rufus to Create Windows 8.1 Bootable USB Flash drive

Rufus is a 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!
