Make a Windows boot on a thumbdrive in Linux

  1. Get a Windows 10 (or other version) boot image (e.g. windows.iso) file by downloading from Microsoft.
  2. Insert the USB thumb drive. Note what device Linux has given it. (e.g. /dev/sdb ).
  3. Put a partition on the drive with fdisk.
  4. Put a file system on the drive with mkfs.fat -F32
  5. Copy boot image to thumbdrive with dd bs=4M if=/home/microsoft.iso -of=/dev/sdb
