Ubuntu: Boot Windows from USB on an Ubuntu laptop [duplicate]



Question:

This question already has an answer here:

I have laptop which from the beginning running Windows 8, I later wiped the hard-drive and installed Ubuntu 14.04. Now I want to wipe the hard-drive and install Windows 10. In BIOS I have selected to boot from USB. But whenever I boot my computer it does not boot on the USB, it just starts Ubuntu. What can I do about it?

I downloaded the .iso file from Microsoft. Then I used Rufus to put it to my USB

enter image description here

I have also tried the following in Rufus which ended in an error message

""The file system currently selected can not be used with this type of ISO. PLease select a different file system or use a different ISO"  

enter image description here

I have looked at these three questions, but I did not find them helpful.

Solution:1

after you press the power button , you hold the "esc" key down. than it will show you options either to start from the usb stick or the hard disk , you choose to start on the usb stick and it will run perfectly. there is no problem with the version of Rufus you just create the boot stick with the default settings and it will be fine.
