Rufus is a free, open-source tool that will help you to format and create bootable USB devices such as flash drives, pen drives, memory sticks, etc.
The most common cases for Rufus is when you need to create a USB installation media from a bootable image (disk image of an optical disc), use an external USB device on an operating system that doesn't have an OS installed, run a low-level utility, flash a BIOS or firmware from DOS.
Important: This page is offering a copy of Rufus binaries and FossHub Team maintains it - please feel free to verify the file signatures. It is not an official mirror - if you prefer, you can download Rufus from its official homepage here.
Note: You need Microsoft Windows 7 or later (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions will work) to run Rufus. Currently, there are 37 supported languages. If you need help, you can access the FAQ section here, to report an issue you can use the GitHub issue tracker or attempt to get in touch with the author.
Rufus is a small but powerful utility. According to the author, Rufus is faster than other similar tools such as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool.
It also has an extensive list of supported ISOs, to name a few: all recent Microsoft Windows OS versions (Windows Server 2016, Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP from SP2+), popular Linux distro (Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, Debian etc.), custom programs (GParted, Parted Magic, Hiren's Boot CD) and even some newer operating systems such as ReactOS. The entire updated list can be found on its official site in section 2 "Non-exhaustive list of ISOs Rufus is known to work with."
