Two exciting features I want to discuss here:-
  1. Edit image file
  2. Create a bootable USB drive

Editing image / ISO file

You can edit the ISO image in the AnyBurn freeware before burning it to any CD/DVD. You don’t need to extract it in a folder or mount it on any virtual drive.

Go to the “Edit image file” option to edit the content of an ISO file.

Browse and select the image file which you want to edit.

After selecting the ISO file, click on Next.

Now, you will see the contents of the ISO files on your screen. You can edit / add / delete any file / folder before writing to CD / DVD. It will come in handy for you to edit the ISO File and not lose any boot information.

Creating a bootable USB drive

Select the option “Create bootable USB drive” to create a bootable USB flash drive using the AnyBurn application.

Go to the ISO image file from your PC and connect the USB flash drive.

It will automatically detect if a USB flash drive connects to your computer. However, if it doesn’t, click on the Refresh icon to detect it.

On a side note,  you require a minimum of 4GB USB drive or a bo table USB drive of Windows 7. But for the later versions like Windows 10/11, at least 16GB USB / Pen drive is required.

Once your file is ready, click on Next. A warning will appear on your screen saying, “All data in the USB drive will be overwritten. Do you want to continue?“. Click OK if you do.

The inserted USB flash drive will be formatted and start file copying to make it bootable.

After the process is complete, your bootable USB drive will be ready.

It would help if you made BIOS changes to boot your system using a USB drive. Select and connect bootable USB to the computer, and once you have done that, reboot in which you want to install the OS from the USB drive. When you are booting, press something like the F1, F10, Delete or Escape key and get into the BIOS configuration. Now, find the section that contains your boot devices. Once you find it, select it as the primary boot device. Save the changes and exit from the BIOS configuration window.

You can test the bootable USB flash drive without installing it on your computer or laptop.
