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

Change Log

  • Fixed a issue that would stop the ISO file from being dismounted if the file path had a space
  • Fixed a issue that caused the progress description to be obscured by the burn button 
  • Added error logging to the GUI progress description

  • Added NTFS and FAT32 file system support 
  • Recompiled to exe to a better format 
  • Updated the icon file to be in the script 
  • 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 and other tools from the Tools Download Page

Download ISOtoUSB

I have removed the text code for the image file to help keep the script smaller

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
