I copied the Windows 7 image from a USB Bootable device to my HDD. I want to convert that folder to an ISO and use that to create a bootable USB.

Please tell me how I can make an ISO image out of that folder containing files.

Creating a bootable ISO can be done using the free ImgBurn utility:

  • Download ImgBurn
  • Install while skipping all bloatware offers
  • Start and install and choose the option of Create image file from files/folders
  • In the Source section, browse to the folder that contains the installation files
  • Set the destination to the path where you want to create the ISO file
  • In the Advanced tab click on the option Bootable Disc
  • select Make Image Bootable
  • Choose Emulation type as None (Custom)
  • Type 8 in the box next to Sectors To Load
  • Click on the browse icon next to the Extract Boot Image and select the file etfsboot.com from the installation files
  • Click the Build icon and wait for it to finish. Once the ISO file has been successfully created.

You may also use ImgBurn to burn the ISO to a DVD or a USB Drive.
