ISO2Disc: Freeware to Create a Bootable USB & Windows To Go Drive

Generally, we install Windows operating systems by CD / DVD. But now, a few software is free to download, supporting creating a bootable USB for any version of Windows, including Win 11/10 OS. Microsoft has officially released a tool called Windows USB/DVD Download Tool.

It helps you create a bootable USB drive for your Windows 11, 10, 8.1, and Windows 7 from an ISO file. The user interface is straightforward. We can use it for 64-bit as well as 32-bit operating systems.

See the above image; a straightforward option is creating a bootable CD / DVD and a USB drive. Only browse and select the ISO file location of your operating system you want to burn, and select target as CD / DVD or USB flash drive.

How to Create Bootable USB & Windows To Go Drive?

Step 1. Download the ISO2Disc freeware tool(the link is given at the end of this article).

Step 2. Install and run the software from the Desktop shortcut.

Step 3. Connect PC with USB Flash Drive.

Step 4. Select ISO Image of OS you want to burn in USB flash drive, and in “Select target,” choose “Burn to USB Flash Drive.”

Step 5. Then automatically detect the USB drive; if not, hit the Refresh button to detect it.

Step 6. Next, click the “Start Burn” button.

Step 7. Next, Show a warning message, “All data on the selected USB flash drive will be destroyed! Do you want to continue?

Step 8. Press the “Yes” button to continue.

Step 9. Then get a message, “Format was unable to complete successfully.”

Note: It shows the wrong message. But, it formats the USB drive successfully.

Step 10. Again, press “Start Burn” to create a bootable USB flash drive.

Step 11. See the completion of the progress bar.

It will take a few minutes to complete the process of burning the USB drive, depending upon your computer speed.

Note: To create a Windows To Go USB Drive, you change Bootdisk Type to “Windows To Go (Install Windows to USB).” Other options you can leave as default. The windows To Drive option will not appear when selecting Windows 7, Vista, or XP ISO files. This feature is available on only Windows 8, 8.1,  10, and 11.

You know that Microsoft’s Windows To Go feature has been officially removed in Windows 10, version 2004, and later operating systems because this feature does not support feature updates, so it does not enable it to stay current. It also requires a specific type of USB (USB 2.0 or USB 3.0) that is no longer supported by many OEMs.
