ISOtoUSB is a simple PowerShell script that burns a ISO file to a drive. The script formats the drive to FAT32 then makes the drive bootable and writes the ISO file to the drive.

Changes to the script since the last version
  • Removed CD/DVD drives from the Available Drives List
  • Add the File System Label to the Available Drives List
  • Added scroll bars to the Available Drives List 
  • Added the ability to name the new volume label 
  • Removed the Cancel button 
  • Removed the window resizing handle 
  • Script now uses Robocopy to write the ISO files to the drive (Better handles the file copy process)
  • reorganized the script to be more inline with my other scripts
You can download ISOtoUSB from the Tools Download Page 


Script to create a bootable drive from a ISO

Runs a GUI that will show the available Drives on the computer from there you can choose the drive and ISo file to burn to the drive
