  10. Use the Windows Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media wizard in the task tray to safely eject the USB device from the computer; this will ensure the write cache has been flushed prior to removal.
     
    Failure to perform this step may lead to data corruption on your USB device.
  11. Connect the USB device to your target computer and power it on (or restart if already on). Choose the option to boot from the USB device, if available.
     
    You may have to open a boot menu or change the boot order in your computer’s BIOS or UEFI settings so that it boots from the USB device. To open a boot menu or change the boot order, you’ll typically need to press a combination of keys (such as F2, F12, Delete, Esc, etc) immediately after you turn on your computer.
  12. The computer will load the Windows Setup installer from the USB device.
