How to create a bootable USB key

Having a bootable USB key on hand is very easy if you have a problem with your computer. Here’s how to create it.

Fixing the PC will never be fun, but it is something you can do from home. In addition to the most common problems, there is something else you may always have: a Cliff USB bootable. When we first hear about bootable USB, there is something to panic about. This is normal, but requires only a few clicks and a good internet connection for operation. Follow the leader.

Creating a bootable Windows 10 USB drive is something you must do if you have a Windows computer. This will save you time and avoid tearing your hair if you need to reinstall Windows. If you are setting up a gaming PC, this is one of the last things you need to do to complete the process. You can create a bootable key with Windows 11 and test a future version before its official release.

In addition to an empty 8GB USB drive and Windows PC, you will need about 30 minutes of free time, and your connection speed may be higher.

For those who are interested, you can use the Mac to create a bootable USB disk, but the process is a bit complicated and you should be familiar with the terminal and command lines. This is not a recommended function for the average user. From a Windows computer, it’s very easy.
