3 fixed blocksize parameter (4m -> 4M, 4m results in an invalid number error) and silly small readability improvements to get past the 6 char edit minimum

I tried the Win7 solution described by Microsoft on a Windows machine:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/windows-usb-dvd-download-tool

and obtained the 0x80080005 error so went to Debian Stretch 9 to try to build the Windows 10 bootable USB using a e5.onthehub.com college/school ISO.

dd absolutely doesn't work for Windows 10. This only works for linux OSes. Use:

dd if=my-linux-os.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4mbs=4M

Note: never try write to sdX1 where X={a,b,c or d} and always check you are not overwriting your harddisk which is usually sda or sdb.

For windows 10 you can use WoeUSB but not from the apt/yum repos. These ones are obsolete, at least for Debian 9. So instead use:

git clone https://github.com/slacka/WoeUSB.git

Then follow the instructions at the end of:

https://github.com/slacka/WoeUSB

You must have all the prerequisites such as gparted and so forth installed first.

I also found at the end of the process that I must run woeusb with sudo. So you just use:

sudo woeusb --device local/of/my/windows-10-image.iso /dev/sdX

and hey presto it just works brilliantly. In my case my harddisk was sda and my USB drive was sdb so I wrote the ISO to /dev/sdb (again be careful, you don't want to overwrite your OS by accident). I then installed it on a military class MSI motherboard with 2Tb Harddisk attached with no fast boot options inside the BIOS and it just works. I turned on absolutely every UEFI option first to get it into the right state.

AlsoI also had problems at install time, with the system hanging forever when using gmaila Gmail email account for login and when the internet cable was connected at the second restart of the machine (during the install process). If you have this issue, disconnect internet, restart machine, let generic account be built, login, restart with internet cable
