    How Do I Install Win 8.1 ISO Through USB?


    I need to download win 8.1 from the microsoft site as an ISO and install it on my PC through a USB pen drive. But after I download it, do I just transfer the ISO directly to my USB? Or do I need Rufus to create a bootable USB?

    Hello xlook,

    Yes, Rufus would be a good option to create a bootable Windows 8.1 UEFI installation USB.

    Hi brink. Should I use the 'media creation tool' or rufus? Which is easier?

    You could use either option.

    MCT is marginally easier. Rufus is easy but also easier to make mistakes.
