Rufus 1.4.9

Rufus is a small utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc. It can be especially useful for cases where:

  • you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, EFI, 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! Oh, and Rufus is fast. For instance it`s about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer orWindows 7 USB download tool, on the creation of a Windows 7 USB installation drive from an ISO (with honorable mention to WiNToBootic for managing to keep up). It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USB from ISOs (1).
A non exhaustive list of Rufus supported ISOs is also provided at the bottom of this page (2). Finally, please remember that once formatted, your drive is still usable as before to transfer data: it doesn`t have to be dedicated for DOS or ISO installation only.
