    Re: Boot windows 10

    I think WoeUSB is not working with 20.04.

    I believe that a Rufus Windows installer is UEFI only.
    It refused to boot Windows Installer on my old PC.
    Of course this is probably okay for those with a UEFI computer.

    Mkusb-plug worked the best for me.
    Mkusb-Dus also worked.
    WoeUSB did not work.

    Ventoy did not work in BIOS mode.
