Sometimes while installing or uninstalling a third party software some of our Windows files gets corrupt and in that case we will have to either reinstall the windows or repair the windows. So in order to install the windows we always need to have a bootable copy of the windows handy. Till now there was not any free software which would be able to make bootable DVD’s except for Nero which is a paid software. Earlier there was a freeware known as nLite which was used by system admins to make bootable DVD’s of Windows XP and Windows vista. The shortcoming of nLite was that it didn’t supported Windows 7. In case you don’t have a bootable CD but you have a blank CD then I will help you to make a Bootable CD from the Blank CD using the application named Windows Bootable Image Creator.
The application is a freeware and will be used to make the bootable windows DVD. The application can be used to make bootable ISO for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. This tool is a portable application and doesn’t require installation. The tool is really simple and easy to use and you will only have to specify the windows files to create the bootable image. The application is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit edition of windows.
This is the first window which will open when you will run the software for the first time after downloading the software. The application doesn’t require installation. It will run directly from the exe file that is extracted from the ZIP file which you will download. The window that will open will have four options i.e. Select OS Type, CD/DVD Label, Setup Location and Output Path. In the select OS Type you will get three OS option i.e. Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. The second option is the CD/DVD Label will give you the option to Label the CD and DVD you can label the CD/DVD with any name that you like but give it a meaning full name so that you can manage them. The Setup Location will give you the option will give open a browse window for you so that you can select the appropriate Windows files that you have to choose for making a bootable CD/DVD. The Last option is the Output Path will also open a browse window for you to choose the drive where you want to make the Bootable CD/DVD and then press the GO button to start the process.
