How to install Windows 11 in USB Drive

In this method we will be installing Windows 11 on a laptop using USB stick. This will wipe out your data and apps you had on your existing Windows. It does not delete files and data from your other drives. We will just install it in C drive. So make sure to backup any files you have left in C drive.

Step 0: Download Windows 11 ISO File

We will need to download Windows 11 ISO file in order to proceed with the installation. I believe you already have that file. Lets not waste any time and get started with the actual Windows 11 installation.

Step 1: Install UUByte ISO Editor

UUByte ISO Editor is a well-known and user-friendly tool for making Windows bootable USB and recently, it adds support for latest Windows 11 ISO. You can use this program on a Windows PC or Mac as it is a cross-platform utility. In addition, this ISO Toolkit can also edit ISO, create new ISO and extract content from ISO file. Please download the program and install it on a Windows PC or Mac. Cick on the download button below.



Tips: UUByte ISO Editor is able to handle large Windows ISO (Over 5 GB) on Mac by default. It splits install.wim into small files so it can be used to create a bootable USB on Mac.

Step 2: Connect USB stick to Computer

Now we need to connect a USB stick to the computer. Make sure it is 8 GB stick. Also, do not keep any important files in the USB drive. The USB drive is going to be formatted in the next step.

Step 3: Create Windows 11 Bootable USB from ISO File


Open UUByte ISO Editor on your computer and you will see five options on the first screen. To create a Windows bootable USB, please click the Burn menu at this time.

Click on Burn option in UUByte ISO Editor



Next, select Windows 11 ISO file by clicking the Browse button and check the radio box of Create A Bootable USB, where you should pick up the USB drive you plugged in. We suggest ejecting other USB devices from the computer at this time.

Choose ISO File and click continue
Choose ISO File and Click on Create a bootable USB option.



Leave the other settings in default state and click Burn button to start burning Windows 11 ISO to USB. UUByte ISO Editor will format the USB drive and write bootable information to USB. Finally, it copies content to USB drive from decompressed ISO file. And you will see a progress bar for monitoring the whole process.

Wait about 7 minutes and you will see a Burning Successfully message. This means a Windows 11 bootable USB is ready! It would be much faster if you are using a USB 3.0 flash drive.

Step 4: Go to BIOS Settings and Select USB as Boot Priority

Now this step is important and a little bit difficult. We need to choose USB drive as a booting priority in the BIOS settings. Restart your computer and press F12, or F2 or Del key to get into BIOS mode. Open Boot tab and choose USB drive as Boot Priority 1. Your BIOS can be different depending on your manufacturer.
