Create Windows 10/8.1 bootable DVD or USB Pendrive

This article will help you to make a bootable Windows 10/8/8.1 DVD or USB drive. We have many software’s to burn .ISO files. Unfortunately, many of them will not work properly even if you burn the.ISO image file properly. It will not function as bootable DVD in most of the cases.

Never try to burn .ISO images using DVD burners because the success rate is very low. I have seen that many people are doing small mistakes while burning .ISO files. It is a little bit difficult to use DVD burning software like Nero, Power DVD burner for new PC users.

  • To create a bootable USB T. drive, I suppose you would need to do it from a PC with windows 8.1 installed. My frustration lies in being unable to install/read Windows 8.1 DVD.

    Any idea why this is happening? It’s a good ISO I believe.

    One thing to notice: If the process fails or the iso is not working on the usb.
    Try to disable “Real time protection” (This is how it is called in Avira AntiVir) of your virus protection software before starting the process.
    Some antivirus software may do weird things if it sees an autorun-file…
