[Tutorial] How to create a bootable USB or DVD drive in Windows

(This post was last modified: 07-09-2017, 12:10 AM by hovatek. )

A bootable USB drive enables you install or run an Operating System on your PC using a USB drive. You'll find this helpful when your PC has a faulty CD/DVD drive or none at all.

See the video tutorial below or @ http://youtu.be/i-TtHMg_zQI
