Rufus is a free software program created by Pete Batard. It is used to format and create bootable USB flash drives, from which you can directly start a system that doesn’t have an OS installed.
It is a very small, light, helpful, and easy-to-use tool. If you need to start your computer in DOS for whatever reason, Refus is one of the best ways. It provides everything you need to work on a bare system, e.g. run a low-level utility, flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS.
Rufus: Creates Bootable USB from ISO
Rufus is mainly used to create USB installation media from Windows, Linux ISO file, which is used to install operating system on a computer. All versions of Rufus support ISO and allow the creation of a bootable USB from an ISO image (.iso).
You can create an ISO image from a physical disc or from a set of files using a free CD burning application, such as InfraRecorder or CDBurnerXP.
Rufus: A Fast & Portable Alternative
Rufus is 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 a ISO. It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USB from ISOs.
How To Use Rufus?
Configuring the program is as simple as inserting the device you want to format, marking the options you want, and clicking “start.” In just a few minutes, your new bootable USB drive will be ready.
To use Rufus, download the latest version from Softlay. Once downloaded, the application is ready to use. Just run the portable rufus.exe file – no installation is necessary.
The executable is digitally signed with signature: “Akeo Consulting” (v1.3.0 or later) “Pete Batard – Open Source Developer” (v1.2.0 or earlier)
