Default Can I install Win 10 like this?

I currently have no Windows system on any PC. I have Ubuntu. I want to
purchase and download a Win10 bootable install iso for use on another PC
(an old Dell Inspiron N4110 laptop). I can make a bootable USB stick
using linux command line something like:

dd if=windowsinstall.iso of=/dev/sdb

I know how to do that.

What i need to know is where to purchase and download the iso file that
will boot the laptop into the Windows 10 installation routine. I assume
I will get a long registration code when I purchase the file that I will
need to enter during installation. I prefer to get the file from
Microsoft if possible. TIA. Bill S.

You can download Windows ISO from this link:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

Use your Linux machine to download the full ISO and then you can burn it
to a DVD drive. Not sure if Linux Junk has any tools to create DVD
disks but that is your task to find out. Microsoft has a Media Creation
tool but it won't run on your Junk machine. Linux Junk and Microsoft
are not generally compatible.

After creating the media, you can install it without the product key and
use it for 30 days for free. During that time you can test whether you
have the intelligence to use it permanently. If this is the case then
you need to buy a product serial number from Amazon as they have some
cheap ones. Amazon UK has got one for £7.00
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07HY9YK9N/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_4?smid=A1MAKNUKQKPX5R&psc=1 .
this price might go up after 29th March when we are completely
independent showing two fingers to German Nazis and French frogs.

Windows 10 Home (do not buy - a bad deal) $140

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16832397825

Windows 10 Pro $200 (has GPEDIT, and some small amount of control)

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16832397826

Those are USB key products.

Of course Linux junk doesn't have any software to burn a DVD, people who
use Linux are too stupid to know how to use it. I use Linux all the time
on my desktop, and simply replying to you obnoxious post proves I must be
stupid.

Not sure about Ubuntu, but Linux Mint has 'usb image writer' and it does
just that. No special software needed. You can download from
Windows for free at
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft.../windows10ISO/
but this only gives you the ISO no key. But you can try writing a usb
if you get the software and try booting it off any pc, even yours to
test the creation of the usb drive.

Once you know you can put all those parts together, you can now try to
invest money into a key, and you have the option now for 1) key only
since you can download Pro or Home from MS, 2) key and USB, or 3) key
and ISO download (which is kinda redundant). I guess a 4th option is
having the dvd and key mailed to you as Paul pointed out from a place
like Newegg, Tiger Direct, Microcenter (a local brick and mortar but
they do ship).

Good luck.

It's call Startup Disk Creator in Ubuntu.

Hi Jonathan,

What is its executable program file name? I
want to see if there is an RPM for it. It would
save a lot of hassle.

Hi Bilsch,

"dd" only works if you set the iso up correctly for it.
M$ does not.

You can burn the iso with K3b in Linux to a DVD.

The only way I have found to make it using Rufus from
a Window virtual machine.

I have not tried Jonathan's Startup Disk Creator suggestion,
but I'd go that route first.

Would not another RPM using distro do?

Maybe. I will have to check it out. I may open a case
on RPM Fusion for it too. rpmfind will have a srpm
for them to use.

Thank yoi!

The Media Creation Tool can get the iso to burn or make a bootable ?
usb stick

In windows, I think it launches a built in isoburn.exe program. It's in
system32
