    Andaming procedure. Use Rufus instead! Hassle-free Flash Drive OS installation, pedeng pede pa gamitin as extra storage. (y)
     
  6. PWEDE MO LAGYAN NANG MGA SOFTWARE SETUP FOLDER PARA PAGKA TAPUS MONG MAG INSTALL NANG OS DI KANA GAGAMIT NANG ANY EXTERNAL STORAGE

    TIPS: WAG MONG E SAKSAK SA MGA COMPUTER NA MAY AUTOKILL sa mga AUTORUN siguradong KAKAININ yung BOOTABLE FILE at di na magiging BOOTABLE
