Help with Partition Wizard

I'm trying to use partition wizard to shrink some unallocated space that is unreachable by windows disk manager. My problem is I can't figure out how to get PW to make my pendrive bootable like it says it can on the website using the minitool partition wizard home edition. Can someone walk me through it or point me to a program thats quick and easy to make the usb bootable plz.

What are you trying to boot, using the pendrive?

Trying to boot Partition Wizard so I can expand my main partition to this unallocated one that I cannot shrink when logged into windows because I have another partition between it and my C.

Use Imgburn to burn the Partition Wizard iso to the pendrive.

IMGburn doesn't list my thumbdrive neither does ISO image burner, MagicISO, or Power ISO. I've used Daemon tools to open the file and copy the content to my thumbdrive but there is no bootmgr file. Can I take one from another file and put it with this one to make it boot ?

The iso with the free edition is Linux.

So you need something like YUMI - Multiboot USB Creator (Windows) | USB Pen Drive Linux

NOTE:You need to defrag the .iso first.

Wincontig is good for that WinContig
