Universal USB Installer Download & Setup

The Universal USB Installer does not require any installation and can be started directly after the download. Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or Windows 11 (32-bit / 64-bit) must be available for use; older Windows versions are expressly not suitable. The data carrier to be used must be formatted as FAT32 or NTFS and have an MBR partition. For subsequent use, the computer’s BIOS must allow the start of USB data carriers.

Copy ISO to USB stick & make USB stick bootable

After starting the program, the operating system to be installed must be selected from a list. Numerous Linux distributions as well as Windows Vista, 7 or 8 and also some live anti-virus solutions are supported. The Universal USB Installer also offers download links for some systems if the appropriate ISO file is not yet available. Their storage path must be specified in the next step.

Last but not least, the storage medium to be written to is selected, which must be formatted with the FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS file systems and partitioned using the master boot record, since the GUID partition table is not supported. After clicking on “Create”, the little program does its job of its own. You should then be able to boot directly from the stick. To do this, the storage medium must be set to the first position in the boot sequence via the BIOS.

Create a bootable USB stick with just a few clicks

With the Universal USB Installer you can create a bootable USB medium in no time at all. Above all, it is practical to have many download links so that the required ISO images can be downloaded directly if the required image file is not yet available. Alternatives with functions comparable to those of the Universal USB Installer include UNetbootin, Rufus, WinSetupFromUSB or the YUMI multiboot tool especially for live Linux systems.
