    It used to work great but the recent version sucks.

    Free iso burner?

    Okay, then you need an USB drive with more than 4GB. Still the same procedure.

    Here, too.
    But it''s easier for system builders or mod freaks to download multiple ISOs with this tool instead of clicking through dozens of pages. And you don't have to run anything on your computer to get those (MediaCreationTool for example).

    There are a lot of reasons why those exist. ;)

    there are plenty of 8Gb and 16Gb usb flash drives that are super cheap and affordable (google search for them or look for some at your local PC electronics store)

    btw, latest version of the Windows ISO download tool is v8.15 released June 1, 2019.

    8GB USB is enough,in general,the Windows ISO is 2.0-4.2GB,if you want to burn it to an USB,8GB USB works.
    And how to download Windows 10 iso,Microsoft doesn't seem to offer a direct download link,you can find many download links on Google.

    As far as I know, Microsoft seems to support downloading Windows iso.

    2004 finally appeared for me now, and my rigs all ready, just got to hit the download and install.

    I was going to use the Media Creation Tool, to bang it on a USB Stick first though, just incase it buggered up :p, so i could just do a fresh install of it, if it did, as ive got everything backed up incase i need to do a fresh, but i can't find my stick, so wondering if i can just use a USB drive, as ive got one of these Maxtor M3 Portables, thats got quite a bit of space free on it, so i could just use it instead of a stick, if it'll work ? (I can't see why it wouldn't, but you never know :D)

    What if it goes that boobies up though, so i can't boot no more, i'll need it onto a USB, so i can boot from that, to do the reinstall.

    EDIT:

    Ive managed to get a stick, so all good :D

    yes this is a highly reliable website you can be absolutely sure, although its creator has recently passed away .... but this was no problem as it is and will always be maintained by other collaborators which shows eternal friendship and a sense of sharing :)

    Just to clarify: If you only have the ISO and no tool to create a bootable USB ...

    Insert USB drive with size between 8 and 32 GB.
    Format as FAT32.
    (If you use a bigger drive, create just a primary partition of about 6 GB up to 30GB.)
    Enter DISKPART in an elevated CMD and press enter.
    LIST DISK
    => Look for your USB drive (check the size and match with USB drive size) and note the index number.
    SELECT DISK <number from the previous step>
    LIST PARTITION
    => note the partition number. Should be 1 if just one partition.
    SELECT PARTITION <number from above>
    ACTIVE
    EXIT

    Then copy over all files from mounted ISO.
    Skip install.wim ...

    Then run this from an elevated CMD:
    Code:
    
    Dism /Split-Image /ImageFile:A:\sources\install.wim /SWMFile:B:\sources\install.swm /FileSize:4000
    
    Change drive letter A to the mounted ISO file "drive", letter B is the USB drive letter.

    The process will take some time, depending on the speed of your USB drive. Result is a Win10 UEFI install USB drive.

    Edit: optional: remove USB:\sources\ei.cfg for AIO installer.

    I hope this helps someone. ;)
