    Make bootable USB drive for Win 10


    Task is simple: Making a bootable USB drive with Windows 10 Education - English - 1909 version

    The hardware I want to use is a Zenbook 14-UX433FA with Endless OS installed (seems a linux distro, never heard of it before)

    The PC I am working at right now is a Desktop with Ubuntu 18.04

    So thats the three things I need to work with. Win 10 Edu, Asus Laptop from an Ubuntu desktop. Check.

    I cant make it work though.

    What I have done:

    - Plug the USB drive into my desktop PC
    - Open GParted
    - Unmount the USB drive
    - Created Partition table with type GPT
    - Select NFTS as Filesystem
    - USB was formatted and partitioned correctly

    - Mounted the ISO I downloaded for the win 10 edu version 1909 with disk image mounter
    - Copied all the files inside the ISO into the freshly formatted USB drive by simply drag-and-drop

    More or less like described here: How to Easily Create Windows 10 Bootable USB on Ubuntu or Any Linux Distro

    Problem is the laptop does not recognize the flash drive as a bootable device.

    - Plugged it back into my main desktop pc
    - Opened GParted and set the flags on the partition to "boot"

    Still wasn't able to be recognized.

    Anyone an idea what to do? I am lost right now and no idea what to do.


    I'll check in a second if my main pc is at least able to recognize the USB as a bootable device.


    Any help appreciated

    EDIT: My main PC is perfectly able to detect the USB as bootable and I could have installed the windows version just fine.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Alright issue resolved. Don't use that method just like that I guess if you also happen to have a laptop like mine. I used Rufus on a windows machine and the USB that came out of it worked and I can install windows now. As for desktop it works as I tested on my main pc, just not for my ASUS laptop strangely. Oh well, use Rufus or Media Creation Tool or some other tool if you want to have a USB that not only supports Desktops but a wider range of machines I guess?!

    Solved for me anyways now....

    :)

    Multi-bootable USB

    Hey guys from TPU, couldn't find any specific thread pertaining to the question asked on title. As mentioned, I'm trying to create a bootable USB, but with many specifics boots available.

    I've been trying to create one with multiple boot device including one that enables me to run Windows 10 directly on the USB Thumb Drive but to no avail.

    The list of bootable images i'm trying to create are

    1. Windows 10 (A full OS running from thumb drive)
    2. Windows 10 ISO (Bootable disk image for fresh install)
    3. MemTest86+

    Have tried YUMI or UUI from the website USB PenDrive Linux but as this is my first time, i don't know how am i screwing up or am doing it right.. Anyone got a rough idea on a step by step guide? Thanks!
