If you want to install Windows but don’t have a DVD drive, it’s pretty easy to create a bootable USB flash drive with the proper installation media. Next, we will tell you how to do it for Windows 11, 10, 8, or 7.
We will make a USB drive that acts as an installation DVD and allows you to install a version of Windows; just follow these instructions.
Step 1: Create or download an ISO for the Windows installation media
Before you can create your USB installation drive, you will need to have Windows installation media available as an ISO file. If you already have an installation DVD, you can use it to create an ISO file using ImgBurn. If you don’t have a Windows installation DVD, you can download ISO files for Windows 10, 8, or 7 directly from Microsoft.
Important: You will need a minimum 4GB flash drive to create your installer.
Step 2: Create your installation USB drive with the Windows USB / DVD download tool
With your ISO file saved on your computer, the next step is to download and install the Windows USB / DVD download tool. The tool works great for Windows 7, 8, and even 10.
1. Once you have the tool installed, you must create your USB installation drive: run the tool and give it permission to make changes to your PC. Click “Browse” to locate the Windows ISO file and then click “Next” as seen in the image.
2. On the next screen, click on “USB Device”.
3. Now use the drop-down menu to choose the USB flash drive you want to use. Then click the Update button. Once you have selected the correct drive, click “Start copying.”
4. If your USB drive already has data included, you will see a warning that the data stored on the drive will be formatted and lost.
5. Continue the process by clicking “Erase USB device”. If your USB had no data, this warning will not appear.
6. Now you just have to wait for the process to complete, which usually takes 15-20 minutes. The drive will be formatted and the files will be copied to the flash drive.
7. When the process is finished, you can close the download tool.
Ready, now you have your bootable drive ready to proceed with the installation of Windows from scratch using a USB.
