Hello @Jackery998.


If you need to create a Windows 11 bootable USB, you have to download the Media Creation Tool from, run it and follow the instructions on the screen to create the bootable USB device you need to install Windows 11 on another device.
A more general tool that you can use to create a bootable USB to be used with other operating systems is Rufus.

Hey there!

Burning an ISO to a USB drive in Windows 11 is pretty straightforward. Here's a step-by-step guide:


Method 1. Burn Windows ISO to USB using CMD

  1. Insert Your USB Drive: First, plug in your USB drive. Make sure it's empty or that you've backed up any important data from it, because this process will erase everything on it.

  2. Use Command Prompt:

    • Press Win + X and select "Windows Terminal (Admin)" or "Command Prompt (Admin)" from the menu.
    • In the command prompt, type diskpart and press Enter.
    • Then, type list disk to see a list of connected disks. Identify your USB drive by its size.
    • Type select disk X (where X is the number of your USB drive).
    • Next, type clean to wipe the drive.
    • Now, type create partition primary.
    • Afterward, type format fs=fat32 quick.
    • Finally, type active to make the partition active.
  3. Copy the ISO:

    • Once your USB drive is ready, simply copy and paste the ISO file onto the USB drive. You can do this by dragging and dropping the file.
  4. Eject Safely: After the file transfer is complete, right-click on the USB drive in Windows Explorer and choose "Eject" to safely remove it from your computer.

Now, your USB drive should be ready to use as a bootable drive. Just insert it into the device where you want to install the OS, boot from the USB drive, and follow the on-screen instructions to install your operating system.
