Hi Finlandnoob - is it the case that

  1. You actually want to install Windows 10 onto a USB drive (& is that USB drive a USB stick (also known as flash drive or pendrive) or a Hard drive (powered or non-powered))?        OR
  2. You want to "burn" the Windows 10 .iso onto a USB stick and then install Windows 10 on your main hard drive?

With that information I or someone else can help you further.

 

Cheers

If you are wanting the second of those two scenarios, then I can help. I am not sure how the first scenario would be carried out.

 

Assuming that you want to burn the Windows 10 installer to the USB drive to install on another computer:

 

First ensure that /dev/sdb is indeed the USB drive to which you want to burn the Windows ISO. You can use

lsblk

to find the drive, and see the mountpoint for partitions on the drive. If any partitions on the USB drive are still mounted, run the following, replacing [x] with the letter and [y] with the partition number.

sudo umount /dev/sd[x][y]

You can then burn the ISO to the drive with this command, again replacing [x] with the drive's letter

sudo dd bs=4M if=/home/1mies/Lataukset/1.iso of=/dev/sd[x]

Good luck!

@Finlandnoob:

 

I am not sure if that Post truncated (was cut off) - was there more to it than that?

 

What capacity (size) is the USB stick? And is it formatted to FAT32 or other?

What is the size of the Windows .iso?

 

Are you familiar with hash algorithms (MD5, SHA1, SHA256) to check that the .iso is uncompromised (accurate, exact)?

 

I would have used the same syntax (order of commands and options) as sasschary has suggested above. The option "bs=4M" can be placed either straight after "dd" or at the end of the argument, after "of=/dev/sd[x]" - with a space between, which would be "... of=/dev/sdb bs=4M" in your case. I can't see that that would make a difference but you could try it.

Sorry Brian - too tired last night.

 

So is the Windows 10 install 25 - 30GB?

 

I am not sure it has been established yet whether the OP (Original Poster) intends to run Windows from a stick, or to dual-boot Windows and Linux from the one hard drive.

 

He may tell us soon.

Unless I am mistaken Windows operating system cant be run from USB like Linux can.

 

You can put it on USB to use to install Windows to HDD

You already have a operating system on this PC?

Has this PC got a working CD/DVD drive?
