    Fat 32 is fine. And disconnect any and all other drives before installing Windows .

    You can`t just copy the files, the stick won`t be bootable.

    I recommend using a program like Rufus. Choose a MBR or GPT scheme, MBR if you are installing in Legacy mode or GPT if you installing in UEFI mode.

    The partition on the USB flash drive should be FAT32, and it should be marked as active. The you just copy the files and folders from the mounted ISO file over to it. You don't need anything extra to make the flash drive from an ISO file. Open a Command Prompt and run:

    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk # <-replace # with the actual number of the USB flash drive
    clean <-this will erase the disk selected above, make sure it is the USB flash drive!
    create part pri
    format fs=fat32 quick
    active
    exit
    exit

    Then copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file over to the flash drive. You can mount the ISO file just by right clicking on it in Windows 8 or 10. In Windows 7 you need an extra program like WinCDEmu:
