  1. Install a new OS on the USB disk using a system image file (iso or cd file)

2. Move the current system to the USB device and keep all data and software installed on the current system


Step 5: Choose the desired option and click on "NEXT". The program will warn you that the data on the USB drive will be erased.To back up your data you could use a free backup software, such as Aomei Backupper standard. After clicking on “Yes” the creation of the bootable USB disk with Windows 10/8 / 8.1 will start.

When the operation is complete, you can connect the bootable USB stick with Windows to any computer with any operating system. Then you have to enter the BIOS settings and change the firmware boot order by setting USB as the first disk. Then turn your PC back on and Windows 10/8 / 8.1 will boot
