This assistant is for those who wish to:
- Do you know how to download Windows 11 onto a USB drive?
Before you begin, check to see if the following conditions apply to you:
- Two tools can help you do this: Windows 11 Media Creation Tool and Rufus.
- In this MiniTool post, we will show you how to use these two tools to create a Windows 11 bootable USB flash drive.
- Tip: If you want to rescue your lost and deleted files on Windows 11, you can use MiniTool Power Data Recovery, a free file recovery tool. This software has a trial edition and you can use it to scan the drive you want to recover data from.
- If it finds your needed files, you can use a full edition to recover all your files without limits.
After you download the Installation Assistant:
- Windows 11 has been officially released to the public.
- Windows 10 users can go to Windows Update to directly upgrade to Windows 11. However, you may need to use a Windows 11 bootable/installation USB drive for Windows 11 installation.
- Here, we will show you how to install or download Windows 11 onto a USB drive.
- After that, you can use the USB drive to install Windows 11 on your computer. Note: To download Windows 11 onto a USB drive, you need to prepare a USB drive that has at least 8 GB of space.
Note: Windows 11 Installation Assistant doesn’t run on ARM-based PCs. It’s only supported for PCs using x64 processors. If you need installation media to install Windows 11 on a different PC, see Create Windows 11 Installation Media.
