I’m still relatively new to Qubes, and I’m trying to create a Windows bootable USB to use on a work rig. I get the USB mounted into a Fedora 32 VM and move the files over from the ISO like I do on a normal fedora rig.
When I open it manually on any computer, all the files are there, but it only goes to a black blinking cursor when booting from USB.
I’m almost certain I’m missing a step as it is Qubes… Ideas?
I don’t know what a “Windows bootable USB” is. Is it a bootable USB that
has Windows installed on it? A Windows installer on a USB?
In either case, simply copying files from an iso will not be
sufficient. You need to configure the USB so that it is bootable.
Can you say what it is you are trying to create?
(I doubt that here is anything Qubes specific here, except for the fact
that you will be passing through the whole device from your sys-usb
qube. But let’s see.)
I never presume to speak for the Qubes team.
When I comment in the Forum or in the mailing lists I speak for myself.
