Microsoft has officially released a major update of Windows 10 version 20H2. If you plan to install a fresh Windows 10, you should download an updated ISO of Windows 10 version 20H2 from the official Microsoft server. You can download the official ISO of the Windows 10 version 20H2 using Microsoft Media Creation Tool or Rufus. You can even create a bootable USB flash drive using any of these tools. However, in this post, we will show the procedure to create a bootable USB flash drive using Command Prompt. If you prefer to use Command Prompt than any tool, then you can walk through this post.
Before creating a bootable USB flash drive, one should note that at least 8GB of USB flash drive for 32-Bit Windows 10 and 16GB of USB flash drive for 64-Bit Windows 10 required. Windows 10 Version 20H2 64-bit ISO’s actual download size is 5.7 GB, and Windows 10 version 20H2 32-Bit ISO file size is 4.2GB.
You can download the official ISO of Windows 10 Version 20H2 64-bit (English) and Windows 10 Version 20H2 32-bit (English) from this link.
Once you have downloaded the ISO file from the official website, you can create a bootable USB flash drive using Rufus, WinUSB Maker, or any other freeware. If you prefer to use a built-in command prompt, then this guide will help you.
