You can download a Windows ISO to your computer, or load a local one, then burn it on a selected USB device or a disc (CD or DVD)
When you want to create your own CD or DVD that you can later use for booting Windows, you need to rely on a dedicated software utility. One of the available options is called PassFab for ISO.
Download Windows ISOs
The main window of the application offers you the possibility to select the Windows flavor you want to download.
You can choose between Windows 10, 8, 8.1 or 7, no matter the architecture (x86 or x64), and each of these operating systems comes with its own variants (such as Standard, Professional, Home, Education, Ultimate, etc.)
For each of these OSes, you can view the release date, as well as the size, so you know how much space you need to free on your PC.
Alternatively, you can import an ISO from a local folder on your computer - its integrity is checked before moving on to the next step, so you can rest assured that errors are not triggered afterwards.
Create bootable drives
Once you have found the ISO you are interested in, you can specify the type of bootable drive you want to create. PassFab for ISO supports both USB, and CD/DVD, yet you need to keep in mind that no matter the medium you insert, it needs to have enough storage to fit your Windows ISO.
The application also offers you the liberty to choose the disk partition type: GPT (required for UEFI boot) or MBR (for legacy BIOS or CSM boot). If you encounter any issues using one of these partition types when installing the operating system, you can simply repeat the burning process using the other one.
In a nutshell, PassFab for ISO is a user-friendly solution for all those who want to burn their own bootable drives, yet are unsure about where to download the necessary ISO. Since the entire process is intuitive, even novices can install Windows editions from a bootable USB drive or a disc.
