    I've never considered using a bootable flash drive as multi-purpose.

    I might install Linux on it later.

    Yup! I've used Rufus to create bootable Linux SD cards.

    I bought four 8 GB USB drives for a few bucks and have dedicated those to my ISOs.
    I have no bucks to buy one.

    Hmmmm, wonder if that would work with Rufus and the ISO for Windows 10?

    My USB hard drive is also bootable. It has Linux Mint, via which I can access the Internet.

    @Brink -- I have a quick off topic question....

    Not to resurrect a thread from the past...But if one wanted to create a Win7 ISO that was both UEFI + BIOS bootable, can we follow the step 11 of this thread you created but still have no issue installing Windows 7 on a PC with a BIOS firmware?

    Meaning, does creating the bootx64.efi file prevent the install from working on a Win7 BIOS setup?

    Hello @KabyBlue,

    You should be able to install Windows 7 with or without UEFI using the USB from that method.

    It damaged my USB drive


    The CDROM worked but then I tried the bootable USB drive and it damaged it. I lost all the information and I couldn't even format it. I had to buy another drive!

    Hello Mike,

    I'm not sure what you are referring to from the tutorial. Could you provide more details?
