if you want to create your own without this tool only using CMD and Diskpart – here is what you need to do

Run CMD

type diskpart

you now enter the Diskpart utility. What you type next is:

list disk (see which number is your flash drive. Let’s say it is Disk 3)

select disk 3

clean (deletes data from USB)

create part pri ( if it gives you error just skip this part )

select part 1

format fs=ntfs quick (formats it in NTFS)

active (this is the important part)

exit

Now mount your iso file and copy all the content to the flash drive. If you have a DVD do the same.

Your USB is bootable and ready !
