We know that the USB bootable version is most useful then any other, because we could update with newer version and most important thing about USB bootable device is it could works on all system and mainly useful for NETBOOK or system not having CD/DVD drive.

So here i m sharing a method for making .iso to USB bootable drive.

Once again i m talking about an open source software which available to download for free.

The software is Unetbootin…!!

UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

Its Main features are UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a “frugal install” on your local hard disk if you don’t have a USB drive. It loads distributions either by downloading a ISO (CD image) files for you, or by using an ISO file.

Download Unetbootin for windows from official site by Clicking Here.

After complete the download process open the Unetbootin.exe.(In Windows OS)

UNetbootin provides a GUI to create Live USB drives from ISO files. To create a Live USB using UNetbootin, download an ISO file, select it under UNetbootin’s “diskimage” option, and specify your target USB disk under “Drive:”. Note that the USB drive must be formatted as FAT32; otherwise it won’t be listed.

It may may be clear in step wise process…!!

1. At Diskimage option Select iso file want make USB bootable.

2. At Type option select USB.

3. At Drive option select your USB drive name.

4. Press OK and wait for Extract.

view below screenshot for further detail…!!

5. After complete extraction reboot your system.

6. After rebooting, if you created a Live USB drive by selecting “USB Drive” as your install target, press the appropriate button (usually F1, F2, F12, ESC, or backspace) while your computer is starting up to get to your BIOS boot menu and select USB drive as the start-up target; otherwise if there’s no boot selection option, go to the BIOS setup menu and change the startup order to boot USB by default.

Note: Live USB drives are bootable only on PCs (not on Macs).
