    Once you boot into Windows setup from the USB flash drive. Then you press Shift + F10 to open a command prompt. That is where you can enter the commands provided by @SIW2.

    That guide is for windows based system. Rufus dont work on Mac or Linux Diskpart is windows and powershell is windows even it based on Linux terminal.

    Install.wim works great the big differens between .wim VS .esd is that esd is more compressed.
    If i make a bootble USB instead of using Ventoy and i want to escape the 4GB limit, i choose NTFS filesystem on the USB drive when i make it.
    You did not read the article in its entirety. It does not use Rufus. You can create the required partitions on the USB flash drive using an app for any operating system that can format partitions in FAT32 and NTFS, and can mount an ISO files and copy the files in it (plus a text editor).

    what do you think you are running when you boot the win10 usb ? it is a small version of windows running in ram.

    after booting the usb, press shift+f10 to open cmd prompt
    Thanks for that. I did not know I was running a small version of Windows, although I did know it was "trying to run" in RAM, but not very well. And I have no idea what your procedure actually does, just by looking at that command (or those commands).

    FWIW, I have re-created the WINUSB installer as before, but this time I specified file sizes less than in the original Terminal syntax. This time it made 3, not 2, files. install.swm is now 2.15 GB, install2.swm is also 2.15 GB, and the new install3.swm is 827.4 MB. Maybe this will be the magic I need.

    Thus the alternative method of creating the flash drive using two partitions rather than splitting the install.wim file:
    Create Bootable USB For Windows 10 Install.wim Larger Than 4GB

    Most dowload methods for the ISO file that do not use the Media Creation Tool have install.wim in them, unfortunately.

    A person can use whatever partitioning tools they have on their computer to get the first FAT32 partition on the flash drive followed by the NTFS partition. The flash drive should be MBR, with the FAT32 partition marked as active for maximum compatibility.
    It is my understanding that for a UEFI installation, which is what I want, the flash drive should be formatted as GPT/GUID. If a legacy install is desired, then use MBR.

    You would be mistaken.

    Then once again I have been misled by "authoritative" sources. I will go through all this nonsense once more with the (re-created) USB flash drive formatted as FAT32/MBR. Certainly nothing else has worked so far!

    BTW, although I read Step 15 of the Microsoft Windows 10 Download page quite thoroughly, AFAIK there is absolutely no mention anywhere of using MBR for a UEFI installation.

    [Edit: Changing the flash drive partition to MBR fixed everything. Now I'm trying to get through the final installation.]

    And I have no idea what your procedure actually does, just by looking at that command (or those commands).
    diskpart
    ( starts ms partitioner )

    lis dis

    ( lists attached disks)

    sel dis 0

    (selects disk 0)

    clean

    ( clears partitioning info from the already selected disk)

    convert gpt

    ( initializes the selected disk as gpt partition style ).

    exi

    ( exits ms partitioner )

    in case there is something odd about the disk, that should reinitialize it the way ms likes.

    The message you got usually indicates that windows setup either can't create or can't determine which is the system partition.
    Therefore it cant create the boot menu entry for the next phase of setup, which requires booting from the target disk.

    In ms speak, the system partition is the partition that contains the boot critical files. The windows partition is called "boot" when you are booted into it and the (usually) separate partition with bootmgr, bcd, etc is called "system".

    *****************************************************************************************

    for future info, I usually split wims using wimlib 3500

    wimlib-imagex split <path-to-install.wim> <path-to-install.swm> 3500


    dism++ has a 4095 selection which also works fine

    the .swm created by dism++ 4095 is almost the same size as the .swm created by wimlib 3500

    I don't know why you're using a Win 10 iso with Install.wim when it so much easier to let MCT create the Win 10 USB installation drive.
    Anyway, I gave you the instructions on post # 20 on how to split install. wim in two install.swm, how to prepare a USB drive to be Legacy and UEFI boot able, and how to transfer the files to it.

    As far as installing Windows 10 Pro, yes, thanks. As far as using it... no. Since I have a Gigabyte Nvidia GT 1030 graphics card installed, and have downloaded its driver, I wanted to see if the card was running with full acceleration. So I downloaded Unigine's "Heaven" benchmark app. The download went okay, but it failed to open with the message "Cannot find MSVCP100.dll." So I went to the Net and found a copy which I downloaded. But now it's in the Download folder and I have no idea where to put it.

    If this file is needed by the app, why isn't it in the app? If it's needed by the Windows OS, why isn't it already there? Where do I put it? Does it go in one of the Unigine folders? Or is there a repository on the computer which is supposed to contain all ".dll" files?

    MSVCP100.dll is part of Visual C++ 2012. You can download and run the installer:
