Burn ISO to USB command

#1 Post by holdingars » 08 Dec 2018 20:24

Hi,

Anyone knows how to burn .iso image (Windows 7) on an external USB drive? The USB should be bootable as I need to reinstall the OS.

As to what I've read in the internet, beginning with Windows 7 isoburn.exe is on board.

Code: Select all

isoburn /Q D: "C:\somewhere\foo.iso"
... where D: represents the drive to burn the image. Not sure what requirements your USB drive has to meet though.

never thought there was a built-in burning feature in command prompt. I tried that but the USB is not booting, says no bootable device.

Why do you need to do this from the command prompt? Microsoft created a tool to boot from USB drives to install Windows. Why not use that. It has been around since Windows Vista if memory serves me.

Do not use the mmand prompt as long as you are not an expert,i don't think it is a good idea for it,you'd better try some professional and easy-to-use burners.

I am using cdrtools to burn virtual images only:
http://cdrtools.sourceforge.net/private/cdrecord.html
(Although i am using an older version, but that shouldn't make any difference.)

Here are some informations how to crete a bootable iso image:

Sidenote:
I recommend to test the resulting iso in a virtual system.
