    I use diskpart to make my bootable Windows install thumb drives. Option two here, UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows Then I mount my Windows 10 ISO and copy its contents to my thumb drive. Works for UEFI and Legacy installs. The tutorial is for Windows 8.1 but works the same way for Windows 10. I've tried rufus but find diskpart easier and faster. For me it is, as I have all the commands memorized now. And diskpat is already there waiting to be used.
