    I never knew you could do that, Cliff. I've always used Shawn's method and it works great for me.
    This trick I originally learned from David Bailey, but, Shawn has it in one of his tutorials, though I forgot which one off-hand. But it's kind of hidden in the middle of a tutorial. Maybe he'll link it.

    I use a quick way also. PowerISO. Select tools> Create Bootable USB Drive> and it asks which image to put on it. Browse for preview 10130 (the latest build).iso and then boot with your USB stick.

    If you're just running setup.exe from a running Windows install, your not booting from the thumb drive. That's why just copying the files to it works. If your in Windows 8 just mount the ISO and run setup.exe. You don't even need a thumb drive. Take that same thumb drive and try to make your computer boot from it and see what happens. Like you would do if you had a brand new blank hard drive with no OS on it and wanted to do a clean install.

    I've clean installed Win10 about 30 times during testing using this method on my laptop in UEFI/GPT. Note it's a Win7 laptop and doesn't have secure & fast boot.
    On my Win8.1 desktop I haven't tried it. Maybe like posted earlier it depends on the BIOS that one has. At least on older machines it works. What's that term I see so often here... YMMV.

    Using which method? Just running setup.exe from Windows?

    Also I have been able to use same USB for DISM source with no ill effects.(Needed to activate :NET 3.5 and once to repair something)
