Part 3 - Burn the ISO File to USB Using 3rd Party Tool

MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Media also helps users to extract the ISO file. This is very useful when users have difficult in burning the bootable USB flash drive or CD/DVD disk directly from the media builder. But to use this bootable program, users need to do the following 2 things at first: 

  1. Download ISO file.
  2. Burn the ISO file to a USB drive (or CD/DVD disc). 

How to Burn MiniTool ISO to USB Flash Drive

To burn the ISO to USB drive, users need to download an excellent ISO burning software at first. Currently, there is much free ISO burning software available, but here we just take Rufus for example.

Step 1: Download Rufus from its official site. It is a portable program so no need to install.

Step 2: Insert the USB drive to computer, and then run Rufus. 

Note:
  1. It’s recommended to copy all data on the USB drive since burning an ISO image will erase everything on the drive!
  2. Users don’t need to change the Partition scheme and target system type, File system, cluster size and New volume label.

Step 3: Rufus will automatically identify USB device which has been connected the computer. If users can't find the desired USB drive, please try using another USB device or another USB port. If you have more than one USB drive connected, choose the one you prefer. Then select the MiniTool ISO file to create a bootable disc. Finally, click "Start".

How to Burn MiniTool ISO to CD/DVD

Although Rufus can help to easily burn an ISO file to USB hard drive, it doesn’t support CD/DVD burning. If users want to burn ISO file to CD/DVD disc, they need to download other burning programs, and here we take UltraISO for example. 

Step 1: Insert the CD or DVD disc to computer and run ULtraISO. Here, users had better insert a blank CD/DVD disc, because the original data could be overwritten.

Step 2: From the menu bar, select "Burn CD/DVD Image". In the new window, select the CD/DVD disk and the MiniTool ISO file. Finally, click "Burn".
