Bootable USB is used to install the operating system. To create it, enter Create a Bootable USB to the field in the main window, or click the Create tile and pick Bootable USB. Here you have several options, you can create Windows bootable image, Windows To Go, Linux bootable image and SD card ready for Raspberry Pi. To do that, you will need to perform several easy steps:
