Download RUFUS from here:
and fire it up.

2) Give the USB stick a label (can be whatever you want).

3) From the drop menu select "ISO Image".

4) Click the button no navigate to the Peppermint 7/8 ISO image you downloaded earlier

You'll now be presented with this screen:-

Select "Write in ISO Image mode (Recommended)", and click "OK".
