Make a boot up disk for Windows on Ubuntu

I needed a Windows 10 start up disk, but I didn’t have a working Windows 10 machine. You can grab one from the Microsoft website.

Once downloaded insert the USB stick into the machine and open disks:

In the top right hand corner you will see a vertical ellipses:

It’s advised you format the disk first, then you can restore from disk image.

You will get:

Click on the None:

Select the image to restore.

Click open, then start restoring:

Confirm you want to restore:

It will start to restore:

Eventually Windows 10 will be on the stick.

Win 10 is now on the stick.

In theory, we should be able to use this now as a bootable USB stick. But with newer machines it may need to have the EFI thing. I will discuss how that’s done on another post.
