How to create Windows installer USB in Linux


1. Download Windows iso. For legal & secure, Download from this link.

Dwonload Windows 7, 8 & 10 from Microsoft 

2. Change Directory to Downloads.

You can see Win10_1803_English_x64.iso file in my Downloads Directory.


3. Insert your formatted USB to your computer. Use "fdisk  -l" to view your USB.
root@kmn:~/Downloads#  fdisk   -l

Disk /dev/sda: 1.8 TiB, 2000398934016 bytes, 3907029168 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x13b2a96a

Device     Boot      Start        End    Sectors   Size Id Type
/dev/sda5       1953904640 3907028991 1953124352 931.3G 83 Linux
/dev/sda6        528123904 1953904639 1425780736 679.9G 83 Linux

/dev/sda8        488284160  520308735   32024576  15.3G 82 Linux swap / Solari

Partition 3 does not start on physical sector boundary.
Partition table entries are not in disk order.


Disk /dev/sdb: 7.5 GiB, 8054112256 bytes, 15730688 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

/dev/sdb1  *     2048 15730687 15728640  7.5G  c W95 FAT32 (LBA)

root@kmn:~/Downloads#  

You can see My USB Device the last line of above picture. My USB is " /dev/sdb1 ". It may vary in your system. Use your Device.

root@kmn:~#  cd Downloads
root@kmn:~/Downloads#  ls
Win10_1803_English_x64.iso
## This is my downloaded iso. Copy the name (or) type carefully the following command.
root@kmn:~/Downloads#  dd  bs=4M  if=Win10_1803_English_x64.iso  of=/dev/sdb1

A moment later, it is already to use.

OK
