View Full Version : [ubuntu] Re-installing Windows 10 after Ubuntu 18.10

March 8th, 2019, 04:45 PM
Hello everybodies, I need your help.
I have Ubuntu 18.10 in my Hp notebook. I need to return to windows 10, without dual boot for the moment.
I downloaded windows installer and woeusb, I tried to do as in some tutorials that I saw, but there is en error message from woeusb that it can't burn the iso into the usb.
I tried to make a bootable usb from a macbook but my system can't see it like boot option in BIOS setup.

How can I solve this situation?
Thank very much

What's the error you're getting using WoeUSB? The one I used to run into can be solved by this: after you plug-in the USB stick, click on the unmount icon in Nautilus / Nemo or whatever file manager you're using, and then use WoeUSB to write the Windows ISO to the USB.

You can also try to create the Windows bootable USB using bootiso (https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/07/bootiso-easy-iso-to-bootable-usb-drive.html), a command line tool that can create a bootable USB from Windows or Linux ISOs .That's what I've used the latest time I had to install Windows on some computer, and it worked perfectly.

Actually there is a tutorial on creating bootable usb disks in this forum under tutorials and another link is https://fossbytes.com/create-bootable-usb-media-from-iso-ubuntu/ Personally I don't know WoeUSB but there are many alternatives.
