    Need to change format from Fat32, and/or need bigger USB. Win 10 installer probably bigger than the 4GB that Fat32 handles. Not sure but format to exFat or NTFS, check first

    I'm glad you solved the problem. But next time you need not drive to the offiice. Woeusb works with big files, if you use a command line according to the following link,

    WoeUSB Error Code 256 with NTFS formatted USB
