Rufus is a utility that helps format and Create Bootable USB Flash Drives, such as USB keys or pen drives, memory sticks, etc. It can be especially useful for cases where you need to create USB installation media from bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, etc.), to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed, to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS, and to run a low-level utility.
If you create a DOS bootable drive and use a non-US keyboard, Rufus will attempt to select a keyboard layout according to the locale of your system. In that case, FreeDOS, which is the default selection, is recommended over MS-DOS, as it supports more keyboard layouts. Rufus Free Download Latest Version for Windows PC.
