Go to the Microsoft website and download the latest version of Windows (as of this screencast, it is Windows 10)/

Burning the ISO File

macOS

Unetbootin

Download the [unetbootin tool](unetbootin download to burn the Windows ISO file

Terminal

Alternatively, you burn the ISO file with the below commands; however, I've experienced more issues burning the Windows ISO file from the command-line than I have with other operating-system ISO files like ethOS- but feel free to try the following:

  1. diskutil list

  2. sudo diskutil unmount /dev/disk4s1

  3. sudo dd if=/Users/mac-username/Desktop/Win10_1803_English_x64.iso of=/dev/disk4

Windows

  1. Download the Rufus tool
  2. Burn the Windows ISO file utilizing the Rufus tool within windows.

If the aforementioned is unclear, feel free to check-out these links clarifying the Windows bootload installer.
