Hello which program is best for create bootable usb for windows 8? not 8.1. windows 8 only.
Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way
Look the picture please, and tell me if you can which is the best settings here? cluster size, file system etc..partition scheme and target system type..
Personally I've never used it maybe someone else knows?
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 acceptAt 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 1Next you remove any old data and meta data from the disk with cleanNext you need to create a partition create part primary then select it select part 1Next you format the partition with a filesystem fs=<flesystem> format fs=ntfs label="My USB" the label switch is optionalLast you have to mark the partition as active by typing activeExit diskpart by typing exitNow you can just extract the content of the ISO and copy it to the USB and it should be bootable.
i have create bootable usb from rufus with default settings, and now i using windows 8 64bit!! its perfect tool!! thanks guys!!
