NTFS should be fine, and MBR scheme is fine since that all computers can't handle UEFI. Rufus is a great tool, but I like creating bootable USB devices manually just for the sake of knowing how.
  • From a command prompt type diskpart this should prompt for elevated rights so accept
  • At the diskpart prompt, with your usb plugged in, type list disk this will provide of list of all of your disks starting from 0 (zero)
  • Next select your usb drive (lets say its disk 1 in this example) select disk 1
  • Next you remove any old data and meta data from the disk with clean
  • Next you need to create a partition create part primary then select it select part 1
  • Next you format the partition with a filesystem fs=<flesystem> format fs=ntfs label="My USB" the label switch is optional
  • Last you have to mark the partition as active by typing active
  • Exit diskpart by typing exit
Now you can just extract the content of the ISO and copy it to the USB and it should be bootable.

FYI this thread is 2 years old...
This is exactly why threads should be closed.

Me personally, when I see post being replied to that are a year or older (3yrs in some cases), I just leave them alone. 99% of the time it's just a spammer with a link to some junk software and they are dealt with. The other 1% of the time it's newbies just jumping in not realizing that the posts are 1 to 3 years old.


Use Rufus or Balena Etcher.
Both are great tools to make a bootable USB drive.
Out of the Two, I would recommend you to use Rufus.
If you have the boot file stored on a drive , you can burn that to the USB drive using Rufus.

I hope this helps!
