Rufus only makes your USB bootable by an image file of your bootable disc and that’s why the first thing you’ll need is a disc image file to make this bootable thing possible with your Pendrive.

Disk image is a single file which contains all your copied disc data and it’s like having a single image file which was made from a bootable windows disk and we can use it to make another duplicate bootable disc or maybe we can make a bootable Pendrive with it.

Rufus only supports the .iso image transfer to the Pendrive whatever it can be the “Windows 7.iso” or “Hieren’s boot cd.iso” and if you’re thinking about to use some other disk image file extensions then that won’t gonna work you because Rufus only and only supports an ISO image files.
