    Do you want a Windows 8 USB or Windows 10 USB?

    Windows 8 USB:
    Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help


    Windows 10 USB:
    Windows 10

    Or you can download the Windows 10 ISO files from Tech Bench and use a program like Rufus to make a USB:

    Just depends on which operating system you want to install on it.

    You mean it won't let you download from the internet? You are either going to have to find a computer that will let you download the ISO file and make the USB, or purchase a copy of Windows that comes with the install media.

    Sounds like you are not the owner of this other PC since you do not have Admin authority. If so why are you trying to install an OS there?

    My PC is not working so I went to the leasing center. That is why there is a password and I'm trying to load onto a USB drive not the PC.

    You have any friends that will let you use their computers or make the USB drive for you? Not only do you have to download the file, you also have to burn a USB/DVD from it - you can't just copy the file over. The whole process from beginning to end takes about 20 minutes with a decent internet download rate.
