Write ISO to USB

I am trying to make a bootable USB to reinstall Windows OS on my Asus laptop. I downloaded Windows USB/DVD Download Tool from MS website but the burning process is never completed.

Was going to recommend RMPrepUSB, but turns out there’s a slightly easier to use program now: http://www.easy2boot.com/

And here’s the stuff on how to use it with modern UEFI based motherboards: http://www.easy2boot.com/add-payload-files/e2b-uefi/

Oh and might be an idea to test the capacity of the USB drive as well, because if windows is failing to write data to it, it could be the drive’s on it’s way out, or worse yet, it’s counterfeit.

You realize this is a forum for a video game called Grim Dawn? Since this is your first post here, I am a bit baffled by the subject of this post.

If you try to write-up a brand new never used USB flash you need patience. If its not actived by manufacturer the initial write speed can be extremely slow.


Indeed… esp as I’ve used that tool many time without a problem, and if it’s win 10 that’s not the tool MS tell you to use, It’s now the media creation tool available direct from MS

Heh. Whenever I make a Windows USB I’m usually coming back from Linux. And my Windows copy doesn’t appear to come from the Microsoft site. Weird. But let me tell you this… when you make a Windows USB in Linux… save yourself a massive headache and just use DD from the prompt. Any other method is asking violence. Unless you’re in Manjaro. Manjaro has a pretty good built-in writer that’ll do it for ya nice.

You dont even need 3rd party software. https://winaero.com/blog/powershell-windows-10-bootable-usb/

RMPrepUSB ran on my computer for a day last month without success,try other, better burners.
