I currently have a Ubuntu install  and a Mac, and I would like to install Windows on my main computer (not the Mac). However, I have run into some issues when attempting to do this.

Since currently using dd to copy over a Windows 10 iso doesn't work, I used mkusb from my Ubuntu install. However, whenever I reach the "Install Now" page, it shows me that "A media driver is missing".

I have tried multiple things to get around this issue:

- used USB 2 ports and USB 3 ports

- tried switching USB ports during install

- tried removing my GPU from my PC in hopes that it would be the cause of the driver issues

- tried loading up the driver files on my USB stick from my motherboard's support page (only the Intel AHCI/SATA driver got through, but when I tried to install it Windows said it wasn't a driver)

 

I don't have access to a Windows 10 PC. I am stumped on what to do.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

You will have to use a Windows computer, there is no Linux option. Go to the library or use a friend's computer to make the media. Unfortunately many people have tried several Linux options and there are none to be found (yet).

Actually, there is, because I just did it and it worked.

WoeUSB, a fixed version of WinUSB, seems to work PERFECTLY. I am so happy right now; I've been struggling at this for almost 5 days straight.

If you are trying to create a bootable USB flash drive using a iso of Windows 10 then install Unetbootin on the Ubuntu computer. That may work for you. Select disk image > iso and browse to your Windows 10 iso.
