ISO buring tools

Tools to make Linux installation media from ISO files. They may or may not work on Windows ISOs.


My most recommended, Ventoy is an open source tool to create bootable USB drive for ISO files.

After the USB disk is formatted by Ventoy, you can just drag and drop the ISO files. Ventoy will load the ISO file in its boot menu.

And you can also copy other files (e.g. documents / scripts) into the USB disk. Ventoy will ignore them and you can use them in a normal fashion.


Download Rufus for Windows systems and it works on Linux / Windows ISOs.


Etcher flashes OS images to SD cards & USB drives, safely and easily.

Runs corss-platform and works on Linux ISOs.

Suse image writer

Suse image writer.

Select the USE disk, click on hamburger menu, select Restore disk image, and then select the ISO file.
