    Note you can use this useful tool to download any Windows 10 ISO file to a location of your choice

    You can also download earlier versions of Windows and MS Office.

    I see mention that you need a 5GB, or 8GB or 16GB USB stick. Which is correct?
    The following ISO is on the second partition of my bootable USB stick, via which I clean-installed Windows 10 in UEFI mode.

    A caveat from experience, the Bootable USB drive process will delete everything including the partition then create a new partition and format as FAT32 but only up to 32GB regardless of the size probably due to the Windows limit of FAT32. The downside of FAT32 formatting is with a single file size of 4GB plus or minus 1 Byte. If a 64GB or larger drive is used it will be only 32GB and remainder space unusable, did that by mistake some time back with a 64GB and ended up using GPARTED to wipe and recreate. Windows can use larger FAT32 drives if created by a different program such as GPARTED, have done 250GB and 500GB portables for use on Mac OS X.
