How to Use UNetbootin for Windows and Other OS Installations

Geekers - UNetbootin is a software that is used to make a bootable flashdisk so that it can be used as an OS installation media, for example Windows OS. I rarely use UNetbootin for bootable flashdisks because I mostly use Rufus.


After I tried it a few times, I'm pretty good with this UNetbootin. Its simple and easy-to-use interface makes UNetbootin a worthy alternative to Rufus.



As we know, there are lots of similar software besides UNetbootin and Rufus that can be used for bootable flashdisks, for example Wintoflash. It's a shame, Wintoflash for the free version only supports the FAT32 file system (the default flashdisk) so the ISO file size that we use later is only limited to 4GB. In contrast to Rufus and UNetbootin which can be used for bootable flash drives even though the ISO file size used is more than 4GB.
