    If BIOS permits it, W10 can BOOT from USB3/3.1.

    WIM file currently is greater than 4GB (above FAT32 limit) so USB stick has to be NTFS formatted.
    Try woeusb in commandline mode, check output for problems:
    Code:
    sudo woeusb --target-filesystem NTFS --device path/to/windows.iso /dev/sdX
    it can be necessary to umount / remove usb partition(s) before.

    If all else fails try this (not tested, just an idea):
    - install hypervisor of your choice (virtualbox, vmware player..)
    - create windows virtual machine
    - install windows using iso file
    - connect usb stick in passthru mode / as physical disk
    - use rufus to create install usb from iso file.

    I just checked the USB drive made by the MCT and it is formatted as FAT32. The largest single file on it is 3,477,984KB install.esd file in the x64 Folder, slightly smaller in the x86 Folder, which is why an 8GB or 16GB thumb drive is best for getting both versions. Getting only the x64 or x86 version requires less room but I'd still use at least 8GB.

    The MCT will actually tell you the size of usb it wants after you have selected x86, x64 or both. When 'both' is selected it says 8GB.

    My latest ESD usb with both x86 and x64 made by the MCT is 7.43GB.

    Use a Windows 10 computer, friend or family or work, download the Microsoft tool to create the USB drive.

    Well, the reason why @tdockery97 cannot use the MCT has nothing to do with the size of install.wim. The reason why @tdockery97 cannot use the MCT is because he is running Linux, and Microsoft has not created a Media Creation Tool that will run under Linux.

    So far, @tdockery97 has not posted any information regarding what files and folders are actually on the USB flash drive being created, so it's hard to diagnose the problem without that information.

    Here's my suggestion to you. Instead of using Unetbootin and WoeUsb, Just copy the files from the ISO to the USB. I tried it and worked perfectly.
    NOTE: I use Linux mint to create a bootable Windows USB but should work with any Linux Distro.
    I also assume that your Windows ISO is good and the install.wim or install.esd is less than 4GB, if not then you must format the USB as NTFS instead of Fat32. Fat32 is only needed for backward compatible with older PC.
    Just follow the screens below:

    Once done. Boot from the USB Stick to install Windows. Leave the partition unallocated
