How to Create a Bootable .wim File

1. Download Rufus (Windows Based Systems) / Linux WinUSB doesn't work worth a damn on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS at the time of this writing so don't waist your time.

https://rufus.ie/en_IE.html (Don't download it anywhere else)

2. Grab your W10 EE/Pro ISO Image if you don't have VLSC:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-10-enterprise (You need a license if you need it more than 90 Days, but for testing/evaluation/school purposes, it's fine.)

3. Launch Rufus and configure the ISO



4. After everything is done. Open the USB and delete the "install" .wim file from \sources and replace it with your .wim file and then rename it  to "install"



5. Boot that sucker and verify everything is working. You're done.
