Every day there are smaller and better devices than we are used to seeing traditionally. This reduction in devices brings with it an important payment: the substitution of traditional CD players and other devices by small USB devices. Today we will explain how you can create bootable USB sticks that perform the same function as CDs on conventional computers..
A bootable USB allows us to run operating systems and tools external to those on our hard disk independently.. Thanks to this we can use bootable USB sticks to access the system's internal hard disk and repair possible errors. To build a bootable USB stick we need the following:
– Bios that accept USB boot. Currently all Bios support it, however, on older computers it may cause problems. To find out if our Bios offers this function, we must go to the boot menu of the motherboard and the USB option will appear. This option should be the first one to appear (if not, we can set it ourselves).
– USB with more than 4GBNormally a normal operating system takes up minimal of this space.
– A Booteable USBThis is the application we will use to make the USB bootable. It is very simple to use (explained below).
The process to create the bootable USB is as follows:
1. We choose the USB we want to use in the process.
2. Save the information that you do not want to lose from the USB stick and press Format USB to give the correct format to the device.
3. We look for the ISO or DVD we want to insert on the USB to make it bootable.
4. We start the process.
Once this is done, we will have the USB ready. To boot from it we only have to configure the Bios as above and start the computer again.
