    Once it has written the iso to the usb, plug this one out and in, so you can see if the iso was written into it and then adapt the boot order via efibootmgr (or via your BIOS)
    It's been a half-year or so, but I think I had to use WoeUSB rather than Imagewriter to successfully burn Win10 installation media to a USB stick. I was able to dump the Win install shortly afterward and haven't looked back, so my memory might be playing tricks on me ... but, that's what I remember. Imagewriter has been great for everything except Windows.

    Strange, about 18 months ago, I burned a win10-iso-image with imagewriter and all went OK.
    But, nevermind, woeusb is also available for Leap 15.3 and Tumbleweed.
    WoeUSB

    Look in the registry

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\Power\HiberbootEnabled

    0 = disabled
    1 = enabled

    I would like to advice you to go for a dual boot.

    To see if windows is still installed, one thing to try is, if it will boot.

    Depending on your bios, you probably can hit an Fkey to bring up the boot menu. Select windows there and it should boot.

    If you install opensuse the default suggestion is to go dual boot, it wont delete windows unless you tell opensuse to do so.

    If windows is still installed, but does not show in the grub screen. Go into yast bootloader and check probe foriegn os.

    This last part will only work if both os use mbr or both use eufi secureboot. As stated already in this topic you can't mix them.

    I believe it is on as default. Can be turned off somewhere in Windows.
