Many people tend to choose to use a bootable USB when they do not have a disk drive on their computer, or do not have the system installer CD in their hands.
Since the Internet is what it is, it allows this to be fulfilled, since more than one navigation network includes versions of operating systems such as Windows so that any user can download it when they need it.
Therefore, bootable USBs serve as tools to format a computer , once the file in question has been saved inside the pendrive.
When it comes to acquiring the version that you like the most of an OS and the ease of creating this type of device, you should not worry, since here we will talk about some simple steps to achieve it.
Requirements to create a bootable USB: Can an ISO file be forged with WinRar?
Fortunately the answer is yes, but before explaining why and how to do it, we have to clarify a few points. WinRar is known to be content understanding software; you could say that ISO images serve the same function.
It is all because ISO files consist of a similarity to portable discs, that is, information CDs. This type of document ensures that within a limited storage space a specific amount of content can enter, in order to fulfill a purpose.
In this case, the purpose is to install an operating system inside a computer that does not have a removable disk reader, so it is an excellent solution.
How to create an ISO file to install an operating system?
Ownership is not something you should worry about, as the procedure can be the same every time you need to create such an important file type for bootable USBs.
Mainly you must make sure you have the WinRar software , since once you have downloaded the content you want to transform, you only need to do the following:
Mainly sets aside the set of files in a folder, so that once done you just have to right click on it and click on “Add to file …” in the menu.
A small window of the WinRar program will appear on the screen, whose “File name” bar contains the title of the card, accompanied by the format extension characteristic of this program.
Instead of saving the file as RAR, you should click on the bar and change that extension to ISO , and then accept it. In this simple way you can create an ISO image to install programs, backup content, record songs, among others.
Creating the bootable USB
If you are using Windows, it will only be necessary to enter the “Command system” as an administrator , to then connect the device to the computer and take action on the matter.
What will be done is to assign the pendrive the task of working as a bootable USB using Winrar , which is possible through this “Command + Enter” sequence.
To begin, enter “Diskpart” and when receiving a text in return, write “List disk”, which will show a list of the number of storage disks that are in the computer.
Based on the space shown next to each one, select only the one that belongs to the pendrive connected to the computer and enter the command “Select disk x”, where x is the number corresponding to the disk.
To this the term “Clean” and “Create partition primary” will be added, in order to press “Enter” and continue entering “Select partition primary”, “Select partition x”, “Active” and “Format fs = nfs”. which will initiate a format to the device.
At the end it will only be enough to indicate the output of the “Command System” , copy the operating system files into the bootable USB using Winrar, and start the computer based on it.
From what you can see, so far it should not be a cause for concern not to have a disk every time you want to reinstall an OS to your PC, because through a few simple steps you can have one of your own in your pocket.
