Create a bootable USB for DOS

If you need to format a pendrive or an external disk, the Windows tool is a good option, with several possibilities of use. However, if you want to create a bootable disk on this USB stick, you need to go a little further, and that is exactly what Rufus (Reliable USB Formatting Utility) can help.

This application, which has just received an update to version 2.0 and is available in Portuguese, enables the option to create a pendrive to boot into DOS, an option that is disabled in the native Windows formatting tool.

In addition, it has interesting advanced functions: the detection of compatible USB devices that are connected to your computer, the installation of compatibility options with older BIOS and the use of the Rufus MBR.

According to its developers, it is also very agile, reaching up to twice as fast in creating a Windows 7 installation stick from an ISO than other similar programs, such as Universal USB Installer and Windows 7 USB download tool .

Deep formatting
Its interface is very similar to the Windows tool window, with the addition of a few extra options. The entire traditional process can be done using Rufus, including choosing the file system (FAT32, NTFS, UDF and exFAT) and the option to rename the pendrive.

The big difference of the application is the option Create bootable disk with ..., which makes your pendrive a bootable disk for any purpose that is needed. Another interesting tool is to look for defective blocks, which can be done in 1, 2, 3 or 4 steps. The more steps selected, the more thorough the program's search for points that may slow down the reading of the installed files.

The verification process takes a long time, but formatting without this option selected takes the same time as the native Windows tool, even when the bootable disk is created. Just click on Start and confirm the total deletion of all files on your flash drive to have a bootable device ready for action.

The standard option for the DOS bootable disk created by Rufus is FreeDOS, a modified version of the traditional MS-DOS, compatible with keyboards that have a non-American standard, such as the Brazilian standard, ABNT.

If you are not familiar with FreeDOS, you should change the selection to MS-DOS before starting the process of formatting your USB stick. If you want to install the boot from an ISO or DD image, change that option.
