Boot disk allows you to boot into Windows, either to diagnose and fix problems or to install a Windows system. You can create kinds of boot disk with various functions depending on the software ISO image file you burn to.

Here in this article we demonstrate how to make a boot disk for Windows 7 by burning Windows 7 installation ISO image file to a USB flash drive or CD/DVD disk which would come in handy when your original Windows 7 installation disk damaged or lost.

Requirements:
  • Have Windows 7 installed on your computer
  • Windows 7 Installation ISO image file
  • An available USB flash drive with at least 4 GB in size or an available CD/DVD disk
  • Professional ISO image file burning tool – Finalbooster 

Here’s How to:
1. Download and install the professional ISO image file burning tool – Finalbooster. You can find it from www.asunsoft.com.
2. Locate the Windows 7 installation ISO image file on your computer. Or if you don’t have one, you can download from Microsoft official website and save it to a specific location.
3. Run the installed Finalbooster. Click Browse button in its main interface to select the Windows 7 ISO image file.
4. Insert a USB flash drive or CD/DVD disk into your computer. Click Burn to USB or Burn to CD/DVD button correspondingly. Here we take Burn to USB as an example. After that it will start burning the ISO image file and will take a short while to finish.
