How to create a bootable USB from Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012R2 ISO media

We’ve previously looked at this subject when Windows 7 was released. With the release of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012R2 on MSDN and Technet, there are many who will want to begin testing and checking out the final RTM versions of the products. For some, this usually means reformatting the USB drives and transferring the ISOs back to the USB disks.

I found a free new tool today – WinUSB Maker by Josh Cell Software. (http://joshcellsoftwares.com/products/winusbmaker/). This is a simple, easy to use, portable application, which works fast.

The process is simple.

  1. Right-Click and Run the EXE with Administrator privileges
  2. Select the USB drive
  3. Select Setup to USB, then browse and choose the ISO
  4. Click on Make Bootable
  5. Click OK (or Enter) to acknowledge that the application will format the USB drive.

That’s it. In a few minutes, the process will be completed.

  1. This application does not work for making Window 8.1 bootable USB. Please do something. It can’t read the .ISO file and can’t run.
