Create windows 10 USB drive: Step by steps
One of the first cool things about Rufus is that no installation is necessary, which means you can stick it on a network location, or another external drive to run it. When you run it, setting it up is simple. Select the USB drive you want to use, (Connect the USB drive on your Computer) select your partition scheme – it’s worth noting that Rufus also supports a bootable UEFI drive.
Then select the disc icon next to the ISO (Select your ISO windows 10 from DVD or from your local disk) drop-down and navigate to the location of your official Windows 10 ISO. After that click on Start button.
Now Refus will copy all the windows 10 installation files on the pen drive. It may take about 10 to 20 minutes. It depends on the speed of your pen drive.
Anyway, after it’s created on your USB flash drive, you can go ahead and install the Windows 10 on a spare computer where you want to install windows 10 (Just connect to the computer USB and boot your PC in USB mode)
