[Question] How to create a bootable USB drive for Windows?


Hello members,

I just completed my first PC build (yay!) and I have a question about installing Windows into it. I already have a Pro license and a serial number, but to create a bootable USB drive you need another computer, and I only have a Mac in the house as the only other Computer. If there is anyway to create a bootable drive, please let me know. Thanks!

  1. Download an Windows ISO from Microsoft website.
  2. Format an 8gb USB stick (at least).
  3. Make the file format NTFS instead of FAT or FAT32 (option is in the format option).
  4. Extract the files to the USB drive.
  5. Eject the drive then boot your pc the the BIOS then change the boot order to USB first.
