Help with creating a boot usb

So i am installing windows 10 onto my new computer but I only have a linux computer to do it on, debian to be precies. To be clear i am installing win10 onto a new computer, not the one with debian on it.

I have gone so far as to download the win10 64bit iso. But this is all i know have to do.

How do i create a bootable usb to install win10 on my computer on a debian linux system?

Thank you for any help you can offer. :)

Well, typically the next step would be to download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft and use it to create the bootable media. If you have a DVD drive you could likely create a bootable media using an alternative Linux tool and the Windows 10 ISO.

If you don't have a DVD drive, or an alternative way to create bootable media on a USB drive in Linux... you could download VirtualBox, create a virtual Windows 10 environment (don't activate your key on it), then use it to use the Media Creation Tool to make a bootable USB drive lol.

Pretty nice. Windows has the benefit of being able to run solid works, and other drafting design software, pretty useful since i am a first year engineering student. The first thing i did was kill cortana when i booted in XD

Haha same here, I disabled Cortana immediately and have zero interest in re-enabling her.
