After you select the media type, you will be asked to select the appropriate device from the drop-down menu, as shown below. Select the correct media type and click on “Begin Copying.


You will see the progress bar as it writes to the media to create the bootable media. Once the process is completed, you will have successfully created the bootable media for Windows 7, which can be used to boot and install Windows 7 on systems.

Most devices now allow you to directly boot through USB; if this option is not available, then you can change the boot order from the BIOS. Look for options at start-up before the system brand’s logo is displayed.

 These options are accessed by F keys; the most commonly used key to access BIOS is F11.

Note: This tool is also used for creating bootable media for Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. The procedure is the same.
