    so disconnect main drive thanksks .
    I also noticed on the tut Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10 it says to navigate to and select your 64-bit Windows 10 ISO file, and then make sure that Standard Windows installation is selected (dotted).
    I even got the same version of Rufus but cant find that option...

    You'll only see that setting after you select the ISO file in Rufus.

    New Rufus update:
    Version 2.18 (2017.11.07)
    • Ensure that the same drive is reselected on device refresh
    • Add a cheat mode to cycle the USB port of currently selected device
    • Make lookup for updatable .cfg file more generic (e.g. ESET SysRescue)
    • Fix handling of multiextent ISOs (e.g. BlackArch Linux)
    • Fix propagation of image decompression errors
    • Update grub4dos to latest

    The easiest way is to let Microsoft do it for you with the MCT(Media Creation tool): Download Windows 10

    Rufus is a waste of time.

    Create a Bootable USB Flash Drive

    Make sure to use FAT32 instead of NTFS:

    To create a bootable USB flash drive

    Insert a USB flash drive into a running computer.

    Open a Command Prompt window as an administrator.

    Type diskpart.

    In the new command line window that opens, to determine the USB flash drive number or drive letter, at the command prompt, type list disk, and then click ENTER. The list disk command displays all the disks on the computer. Note the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive.

    At the command prompt, type select disk <X>, where X is the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive, and then click ENTER.

    Type clean, and the click ENTER. This command deletes all data from the USB flash drive.

    To create a new primary partition on the USB flash drive, type create part pri, and then click ENTER.

    To select the partition that you just created, type select part 1, and then click ENTER.

    If your server platform supports Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), you should format the USB flash drive as FAT32 rather than as NTFS. To format the partition as FAT32, type format fs=fat32 quick, and then click ENTER.

    Type active, and then click ENTER.

    Type exit, and then click ENTER.

    When you finish preparing your custom image, save it to the root of the USB flash drive.

    Then just mount the Windows installation ISO file and copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the USB flash drive and you're done.
    Hi again mate. You've been helping me on one of my posts with this. Thanks again. Ive listed all of your Diskpart commands and I'm going to use your exact method to create a bootable Win10 USB flash drive at the weekend. I'm then going to use the Media Creation Tool to download the Windows 10 ISO.
    A couple of questions if you don't mind me pestering you again so that I'm sure I perform the whole procedure correctly. At the end of your instructions you say "When you finish preparing your custom image, save it to the root of the USB flash drive." What exactly does that mean?
    You then go on to say "
    Then just mount the Windows installation ISO file and copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the USB flash drive and you're done
    "
    I'm unsure how to follow those two instructions. Would you mind explaining in detail for a novice what exactly you mean in both of those instructions.
    I'm not familiar with mounting ISO's..so its a learning curve for me..Sorry

    Creating a EUFI win10 USB with RUFUS you have to pick NTFS and not FAT32. The latest windows installation media contain a install.wim file that is bigger than 4GB and hence not supported by the FAT32 filesystem. You will never be able to create a eufi win10 USB on fat32 with latest windows10 release (for example the fall creator updated windows 10 iso's)

    However, RUFUS DOES SUPPORT EUFI BOOT FROM NTFS, so just choose NTFS in RUFUS
