Highly recommended if you use Rufus on Windows 10 Creators Update

Rufus is a utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.
  • you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)
  • you need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
  • you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
  • you want to run a low-level utility
Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need!

Get Rufus: Index of /downloads

  • Preserve 'GPT for UEFI' option if the user changed it before selecting an ISO
  • Fix unwanted notification sound when closing with the X button
  • Fix inability to restore the minimized application after a popup is displayed
  • Fix an issue when trying to install Syslinux/NTFS twice in a row
  • Work around Microsoft's inconsistent casing of device IDs during device enumeration
  • Work around Microsoft's aggressive locking of partitions in Windows 10 Creators Update
  • Restrict write sharing permissions when accessing a device
  • Update libcdio and GRUB 2.0 to latest

I used it when I made a bootable Windows 10 to fix my laptop. Actually I used it only twice since it requires you to delete all contents of your flash drive before making it bootable.

A fantastic tool .
Had it for years and use it regularly .

And for Linux users , Multibootusb is also superb ! - ( slightly off-topic , I know )
