Install Windows 10 via USB from Linux

My Windows 10 installation had been corrupted (probably due to some broken RAM). I needed to re-install Windows 10 using a USB drive. However I only had an .iso file from the Microsoft Windows 10 ISO download page and a Linux laptop.

Steps to install Windows 10

  1. Download ISO (make sure you have the right key and version).

  2. Install WoeUSB.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install woeusb

    An offical PPA on its way.

  3. Create bootable USB from .iso file.

  4. Plug into computer and (re-) install Windows 10.
