Creating a Windows 10 USB Repair Boot Disk using Windows 7

I am trying to create a Windows 10 boot USB drive. The problem is that I only have Windows 7 machines. Is it possible to create a Windows 10 repair boot disk using Windows 7? I have downloaded the Windows 10 creation tool, but can't find anything on running it on Windows 7 to end up with a Win10 repair boot USB drive.

I would appreciate any info on this that anyone can give me. Thanks in advance!

Go here:


Explode the section "Using the tool to create Installation Media ..."

That tells you how to do it. I think you can do this on any PC because you may have to do this to install Windows 10 on a Windows 10 computer where the hard drive has failed.

Download Windows 10 ISO from here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO
use a usb bootable creating media, i prefer rufus https://rufus.akeo.ie/ ... download, run, click the CD icon and choose your ISO. You need a 8GB flash drive.
restart and boot from the drive, at the first screen click NEXT, at the second screen click REPAIR ...

Thanks guys! It worked out great! I was mainly concerned that it may not let you make a Win10 on a Win7 system.
