Nowadays USB sticks got pretty common, and that's understandable as they're easy to carry around and they can be used to store pretty much anything. Therefore, it also became more convenient to make use of such USB flash drives when it comes to Windows installations as well, especially since CDs and DVDs slowly got obsolete too as a result of being just not as easy to carry around, prone to scratches and other damages, and requiring the use of an optical drive reading unit, which is not always at hand. Simply put, using USB sticks for Windows installations is undeniably more comfortable and effective. The only thing needed is a tool to make the creation of such bootable drives an easy job.
Novicorp WinToFlash Lite is the free edition of Novicorp WinToFlash, a handy tool created specifically to allow the creation of bootable USB Windows installations.
