You can create a recovery flash drive for Windows 7 from ISO. But before starting your work, you need to make some preparations: ISO image file, flash drive, and a Windows 7 USB download tool. When you are ready, you can check the below step-by-step guide:

Step 1. Plug your flash drive and run the Windows 7 USE DVD Download Tool. Next, click Browse to select your source file.

Step 2. Click on the USB device button and select it as your media type. Then, insert the USB flash drive into the working computer and select it.

Step 3. Once done, click Begin copying to start your task. Then wait for the copying process to finish.

Creating a Windows 7 recovery flash drive via ISO is not difficult. However, there is a problem a Windows 7 recovery USB drive cannot be used to repair a computer running windows 10, and a recovery from Windows 7 64bit is unable to repair Windows 7 32bit operating system. So, if you encounter the same problem, you can try a powerful tool called EaseUS Todo Backup. This software helps you create recovery media to boot any version of Windows 10/8/7 without any effort.
