We have covered several ways to create a bootable USB flash drive to install Windows 7 from USB drive including the recently covered how to use EasyBCD tool to create a bootable flash drive guide. There are quite a few standalone utilities available to do the same job.
Bootable USB Drive Creator Tool is one such utility that enables you create a bootable USB with a few mouse clicks. As we have mentioned before, it’s standalone tool and doesn’t require installation.
Using this tool is fairly simple. Simply download and run the tool to begin creating the bootable flash drive. Make sure that you enable Quick Format option to make it quick.
