winusb woeusb woe-usb <reply> Ubuntu does not have a recommended tool for preparing bootable Windows installation USBs. If you need one, consider using Microsoft's media creation tool from a Windows computer (see ##windows for support). If this is not an option, there are third-party unsupported tools like WoeUSB ( https://github.com/s…cka/WoeUSB , sudo snap install --edge woe-usb ) that might work. Jordan_U
