    I can't boot Windows 10 from my USB

    Hi, so basically few weeks ago I installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my PC, before Ubuntu I had Window 10, I ran Ubuntu installer and chose option to delete everything from my hard disk and install Ubuntu 16.04. Now I see what a mistake I made and I want to get back to Windows 10. I downloaded Win10 installer from Microsoft page, the installer is .iso format. I mounted it on USB and it was succesful. I restarted computer, put USB in it, and when it was booting there was only a blank screen with this: "/" in the top left corner. Please if you have any solution write it.

    Hi... You don't mount the iso onto a flash drive, it wouldn't work that way but Microsoft makes it so easy to create just do the following >>>First thing to do plug in your usb flash drive and formatted so it's totally clean were by nothing is on the drive . Now go to Microsoft

    Select Download Tool Now .... Afterwards start the program from where you just downloaded to. Once it starts agree to the licensing part, then select >>> Create installation media for another PC , then you will see >>> Select language, architecture, and edition . Now this part is where you make your selection and usually the Language and Edition you wouldn't touch you would leave what's already selected. The Architecture is where you might want to change . It's either you want a 64 bit Operating system or 32 bit, that depends on the system you want to install windows on. Is your computer a 32bit system or 64 bit, just choose the correct one . Now to select these options you need first to remove the check mark on >>> Use the recommended options for this PC, once you remove this check mark you can change the language, architecture, and edition if need be or if the selections is what you want, then leave it as is and click Next. Now make sure it selected on USB flash drive, if it is just click next and it will start doing it thing installing windows files onto it. Afterwards once it's finish you now have a windows 10 operating system on a flash drive that you can use to install windows from. Just make sure to change your bios screen to boot off usb
