Use USB as Bootable Disk in Virtual Box

Many times we need to try something first in a virtual box and then installed it on our main system. Same with the bootable software, there are ways to manually set up a Virtual Machine so that it boots from USB, but they are a bit complex. Virtual Machine USB Boot is a portable tool that makes it easy to boot a virtual machine - VirtualBox or QEMU - from a USB key. It is much more straightforward, so simple that beginners will have it working in seconds, yet also super-configurable for anyone who needs some fine-tuning.

  • Download the Software.

  • Extract the RAR. 
Insert a Bootable USB in the System before starting the Software
  • Click on Add. 
  • Select the name of the Virtual Machine you want to add to the USB as a first boot option. In our example, it's Windows 10.
  • Click on the option Drive to add and boot and select your USB.
  • Click on OK (leave other settings as it is, as mentioned below).
If any warning occurs don't worry just click OK.
  • Select the option you just created and click on Start.

If you see a warning message to wait. Just click OK and wait for a while as written in the message.
If you encounter an error message like below don't worry, click OK.

  •  You will see a loading icon before the name of the Virtual Machine. Done!
