Thread: create windows 10 usb boot drin from linux -kde

  1. #1

    Default create windows 10 usb boot drin from linux -kde

    I tried using k3b to burn on dvd the latest windows 10 installer. It's 5gb and I have to make a bootable usb drive from linux only.

    imagewriter,k3b, woeusb, and various others. None of them will accept any usb drive. My mswin 10 system is not functioning at all. The mswin drive may have failed again. I kept hear squeaking noises from it.

    Which app will convert a "windows 10" iso to a bootable usb drive? installing from yast software.

    It is the same as creating any other bootable USB device from a suitable ISO image.

    Insert the USB memory stick, do not bother mounting or formatting it.
    Use sudo fdisk -l to determine the device name for the USB device. Mine is /dev/sdb
    e.g.
    Code:
    rayh@yoga3:/home> sudo fdisk -l
    Disk /dev/sda: 238.5 GiB, 256060514304 bytes, 500118192 sectors
    Disk model: LITEON IT L8T-25
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disklabel type: gpt
    Disk identifier: 2B2FE8F9-973E-4763-B432-3AEF0106CC3B
    
    Device         Start       End   Sectors  Size Type
    /dev/sda1       2048   1026047   1024000  500M EFI System
    /dev/sda2    1026048  17803263  16777216    8G Linux swap
    /dev/sda3   17803264 122660863 104857600   50G Linux filesystem
    /dev/sda4  122660864 248489983 125829120   60G Linux filesystem
    
    
    Disk /dev/sdb: 7.5 GiB, 8053063680 bytes, 15728640 sectors

    Partition table entries are not in disk order.
    rayh@yoga3:/home>
    Move [cd] to the same directory as the image.
    Use dd to copy the image to the USB device.
    Code:
     sudo  dd bs=16K  status=progress  if=Win10_1909_English_x64.iso  of=/dev/sdb
    Once finished reboot.

    Thanks. I will try this when the newest major upgrades come out. December 2019 update. I will post on here.

    I managed to get 'woe utility' to work for the November 2019 update. However, I found more than 3 different viruses found by linux scanvirus app(clamscan engine). The day after installing.

    Scanvirus once again cleaned viruses The description mentions even if removed the virus, settings where changed. So, I have some work to do to fix windows 10.


    Thank you to all linux creators for a stable and very secure OS. One local virus in ten years!
