    To create a bootable disk for my laptop.
    The first time I used Rufus, I failed, and the second time I used Win32 Disk Imager, I also failed
    All the steps follow its instructions ,but after burning the iSO to USB, the laptop did not find any bootable disks,i don't know why , what's the best Alternative to Rufus and Win32 Disk Imager ?

    I use rufus all the time with success.
    Where did you get your Win 10 ISO? Directly from Microsoft?

    Also did you want to make UEFI compatible Win 10 install or legacy bios?

    If you are bu
    If you are burning windows, Rufus is by far the best

    Steps to take:
    • Confirm if you have UEFI instead of a BIOS - this can cause problems
    • Download the windows 10 ISO here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/Windows10
    • Choose save to ISO (or you could try save to USB and skip to installing)
    • If you saved as an ISO, start up Rufus (I use 2.18)
      • Choose BIOS AND UEFI boot
      • Pick your windows 10 boot image
      • Burn to usb
    • Boot into your BIOS/Setup/UEFI
    • Make sure you look at any options for legacy USB, or boot options and allow removable storage
    • Also anything for boot in "legacy" mode
    • start up and look for the key to give you "boot options" (often F10 or F11)
    • If you get a choice of 2 USB disks, pick UEFI WIndows USB
    Good luck

  6. if you need a bootable disk for your Razer blade, you can just request one from support, or you can just format a new 16GB USB, and use window's built in bootable disk creator
