Rufus updated its smaller but better version to version 3.14.1788. With Rufus (and smaller) you can have bootable ISOs on a USB stick, or you can download an ISO directly and write it to a stick.
Some bugs have been fixed in the new version.
- Improved DT write speed (uncompressed images only)
- Improved checksum calculation speed
- Advanced detection of network connectivity
- Only asks for additional GRUB / Syslinux downloads if not written in DT mode
- Corrects the “loss” of the hard disk after writing Ubuntu 20.10 in DP mode
- Fixes a GRUB compatibility issue with Ubuntu 21.04
- Fixes an issue where Rufus MPR was not selected by default for Windows ISOs
- Fixes an issue where drag and motion was enabled during driver creation
- Add more “exceptions” to the mandatory DT image character
Although some have now switched to Vento, Rufus still has a huge fan base. Both have their own Raison D ‘drive, just like any other tool for placing ISOs on sticks or external hard drives.
Info and Download:
- In particular: Downloading Windows 10 ISO is only possible if the update function (at least monthly) is enabled in the settings.
