In one of my previous article I wrote How to create a bootable Windows 7 USB flash drive Manually. But many people find the CMD method a little complicated. So there is an easy to use tool called UltraISO which makes the job very easy, many of you may already be using UltraISO.

There is no doubt that UltraISO is one of the finest software available to create and burn ISO files. There are also options to create bootable CD/DVDs and edit ISO files in the software. But did you know that you can even use UltraISO software to create a bootable USB to install Windows 7 or Windows 8 from USB flash drive?

Here is how to use UltraISO software to create bootable USB drive:

Step 1: Download and install UltraISO software on your PC. Even though UltraISO is a paid software, you can download the free 30-day trial version to make your USB bootable.
Step 2: The next step is to run UltraISO trial version with admin rights. Right-click on the UltraISO software shortcut on the desktop or Start menu entry, and select Run as administrator option. If you are prompted with Register Now screen, click Continue to Try.. button to use the trial version.

Step 3: In the home screen, click File > Open option to browse to your Windows 7 or Windows 8 ISO file.
Step 4: Next, in the home screen of UltraISO, click on Bootable menu and then click Write Disk Image option to launch Write Disk Image dialog box.
Step 5: In the Write Disk Image dialog, select the Disk Drive as your USB flash drive, select the write method as USB-HDD before hitting the Format button. It will then launch Format Removable Disk dialog, where you need to simply click Start button to begin formatting the flash drive. Please backup all data from the USB device before hitting the Format button.
Step 6: Once the format is done, click Write button and then click Yes for the warning prompt to start the process. When the writing is finished, you will see Burn Successful message event list. Close UltraISO software and connect your USB to a machine to start installing Windows.
