Today making a bootable pen drive is easy because on the internet you get many software and apps with different names. If you want to install a new operating system and you do not want to use the traditional way (CD/DVD) and you want a modern way using the bootable USB. All the software working like the same, software requirements are USB and ISO image files. The next step is to write the ISO image into the USB drive in a way that your PC can boot from the USB drive. Many software is using to create a bootable USB drive but here I’ll show you the top 5 software.
Create bootable USB drives the easy way
Rufus is a utility that helps format and creates bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pen drives, memory sticks, etc. It is very useful where you need to install your ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.) using USB installation media.
Universal USB Installer
Universal USB Installer tool for creating bootable live Linux OS. It has a predefined drop-down list of most of the Linux distributions you have just select the distro. Give the path of ISO image and USB flash drive which you want to boot from USB. The Universal USB Installer is easy to use just you have to follow some steps to create a bootable USB drive.

YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator
YUMI is a short form of Your Universal Multiboot Installer, where we can make Multiboot ISOs in one bootable USB. If you want two or more distro in the same USB drive so you have to use it to YUMI. Multiboot ISOs which used grub to boot ISO files directly from USB, YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device, YUMI was originally intended to be used to store and run various “LIVE Linux” Operating Systems and tools from USB.
This tool is exactly similar to Universal USB installer or you may say Universal USB installer is similar to UNetbootin.
Create a bootable USB in any Linux distribution. If you are using Linux distro as your host operating system, then UNetbootin is an option to go for. UNetbootin is available for all platforms like Linux, macOS, and Windows.
So if you are using Linux, most of the software listed here will not run where UNetbootin will come to help.
Linux Live USB Creator (LiLi)
Linux Live USB Creator is a free and open-source software for Windows. The special feature of LiLi is called built-in Vitalization, which allows users to run the installed Linux operating system without restarting Windows and this is an exclusive feature of LiLi.
