Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool, available for download on its website, makes creating a Windows 10 Bootable USB Drive extremely simple.
Create Windows 10 Bootable USB Drive
Simply create a bootable Windows 10 USB drive, download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft’s download site, and run it on your computer. You’ll also need an empty USB Flash drive, so it does not conflict with anything.
Furthermore, the USB Flash Drive should have a minimum capacity of 4 GB for 32-bit version download and 8 GB for 64-bit version download.
Microsoft’s download tool will detect the appropriate version (32-bit or 64-bit) for your computer (You can also manually select the required version).
