How to create a bootable USB key in Windows 10

Before creating an amiable USB key with Windows 10, make sure that the USB port, which is used as a bootable medium, is clean, without critical data. As this process will completely format the USB, all data will be lost. In addition, the flash drive must have at least 4GB of memory. If everything is OK, you can start creating the bootable media. To do so, follow these steps:

Step 1: Download "Media Creation Tool" according to the type of your system from the Microsoft download page. The type of your opening system can be found by opening Start> Settings> System> About.

step 2: Once MediaCreationTool has been downloaded, run it. Open the initial Windows Installation Program screen, where you have to choose what you want to do. Select Create installation media for another PC and click on next.

Step 3: On the next screen, select the language, architecture and version of Windows 10.

step 4: Select the amiable device. Now you need to choose the type of media that will be used to download and install Windows 10. Select the USB flash drive and click next.

step 5: In this step, you must connect the USB flash drive to the computer (if it is not already connected). If the program does not see your USB stick, try to reconnect it.

step 6: If everything is OK, click on next. Then Windows 10 starts to load. The process is quite long, so you have to be patient.

Step 7: On the next screen, the program will inform you of the availability of flash memory and files. Click on Finish. And that's all!

The USB flash drive with Windows 10 is ready to use.
