Create Windows 10 Install Media (USB flash drive) on Linux - Comment Page: 1

This is quick guide howto create Windows 10 install media / bootable USB flash drive on Linux. I use here Fedora Linux, but same method works on Ubuntu, Arch, Gentoo or any other Linux too. Reason why this guide exist is that the latest Windows 10 image Win10_2004_English_x64.iso (May 2020 update) install.wim file is too big to fit on Fat32 file system 4 Gb file size limit. Yes I know that you can use NTFS, but systems with older UEFI/BIOS won't boot NTFS formatted USB flash drives, so it's better create one with Fat32 file system. This is video guide and I use here following tools, gnome-disk-utility and wimlib-tools. You can of course use example gparted, fdisk or cfdisk etc....

    1. Why not just give the how-to instead of pointing to a YouTube video? It’s not that I am impatient, just I thought we’re past the age of being spoon-fed information.

        Excellent point, I can add commands too.
