    well i have to reinstall windows on my pc. im using a chrome book right now and for some reason when i burn disk images using the recovery utility i cant boot off of the usb. if i extract the files from the iso and copy the files from the extracted iso folder, can i boot from the usb?

    yeah rufus is the best. when you burn an image on a chromebook, you have to change the end from iso/img to bin. i think that has something to do with it
