Rufus 3.18 Final Released

Rufus is a utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB keys/pendrives, memory sticks, etc.

It can be especially useful for cases where:

  • you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, UEFI, etc.)
  • you need to work on a system that doesn’t have an OS installed
  • you need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
  • you want to run a low-level utility

Changelog

  • Version 3.18 (2022.03.11)
    • Fix DLL sideloading vulnerabilities
    • Fix ISO → ESP creation when running on Windows 11
    • Fix an issue when detecting network connectivity when the DHCP service is disabled
    • Update FreeDOS to version 1.3
    • Add bypass of Windows 11 restrictions for in-place upgrades
    • Add Miracle Linux 8 to the list of Red Hat exceptions
    • Other internal fixes and improvements

Despite its small size, Rufus provides everything you need!

Oh, and Rufus is fast . For instance it’s about twice as fast as UNetbootin, Universal USB Installer or Windows 7 USB download tool, on the creation of a Windows 7 USB installation drive from an ISO. It is also marginally faster on the creation of Linux bootable USB from ISOs. (1)
A non exhaustive list of Rufus supported ISOs is also provided at the bottom of this page. (2)
