How do I create a bootable USB drive with W10 in Mint 19.1?

Post by PetroL » Wed Mar 13, 2019 5:23 am

Hello!

I have the Windows10.iso and want to make a bootable USB drive for installation in another laptop, is there a software that can make this in Mint?

depends on the specs of the laptop. is it mbr, uefi. or both? i found the default boot media creator in mint is worthless. for uefi i found unetbootin works great, and for mbr woeusb works great.

I don't believe that many of the linux usb writers support win10. You can try woeusb but don't hold your breath.

BOTH what i listed support 10 PERFECTLY. as i stated unetbootin for uefi install and woeusb for mbr install. again which one works for the op depends on what type of bios the op's laptop has.
