  2. Insert the USB stick to the machine. If the USB stick is already connected, reconnect it.
  3. Once the USB stick has been detected, press “Continue” to move to the next step in the process.
  4. Click “Browse” to open the Window’s File Explorer and use it to select the ISO image. Once the ISO image has been selected, continue the process.
  5. Sign in to your Blancco Cloud account.

  7. Wait until the bootable USB stick has been created.
