WoeUSB: I'm a Linux user. However, sometimes I need to install Windows 10 or someone Windows Server. How can I create a bootable USB with Windows in a Linux environment (Debian, Ubuntu or Arch) with GUI tools?
From time to time we have published different ways of creating Windows Bootable USB. One of the methods was without tools, using only the terminal and a Windows ISO image.
Below we will see how you can create a Windows Bootable USB using an application called woeusbgui.
A Linux system such as Debian or Arch
A Windows ISO. The following instructions work with Windows 7 / 8 / 10 pro or home versions.
Install woeusb from the source code
Some GNU compiler packages
and of course a USB (usb hard drive or USB stick) with 4 Gb or more free space.
Warning: An incorrect recording of an ISO boot on a device (USB or hard disk) may permanently destroy partition information, file system or data. Be careful with the names of the discs and discs.
But let's see how to create a Bootable Windows 10 USB on Linux with the woeusb application
The method is recommended for all new Linux users, as it requires less CLI typing and is easy to use. WoeUSB is a simple Linux program for creating a Windows installation program on a USB stick 10 from a DVD or an ISO.

sudo apt-get install devscripts equivs gdebi-core mk-build-deps sudo gdebi woeusb-build-deps _ * .deb dpkg-buildpackage -uc -b sudo gdebi ../woeusbb.deb
That was ... Let's now create a Bootable Windows 10 USB from a Linux system
