I have downloaded Windows 10 ISO image and I'm used dd command on Linux to make a bootable USB drive:

$ sudo dd if=Win10_1903_V2_English_x64.iso of=/dev/sdc
$ sudo sync

I when I try to boot an Asus laptop with the USB drive, it is on the boot menu. However when I select it and press enter, this message is received:

Asus boot message

Reboot and Select proper Boot device

or Insert Boot media in selected Boot device and press a key

Also tried on a HP ProBook 450 G3, the USB drive is on the boot menu, but when selecting it and pressing enter, a quick black screen is shown and then jump back to boot options.

I wonder what I'm missing. Thanks.

    The windows 10 download link you provided is the tool to make the bootable usb drive, why not use that?

  • Since some time ago the Microsoft ISOs are somehow weird and the traditional tools including DVD cannot be used.
