I'm trying to boot an usb with Windows 10, and making it bootable from Linux (ubuntu).

For this purpose I installed woe-usb as a snap package. The USB drive is formated to exfat.

I get this weird error

sudo woe-usb.woeusb --device ~/Desktop/Win10_2004_EnglishInternational_x64.iso /dev/sdb
WoeUSB v@@WOEUSB_VERSION@@

You may now safely detach the target device

Any ideas?

You got a /bin/mount: Permission denied mount_source_filesystem: Error: Unable to mount source media Error: Unable to mount source filesystem error. Connect the woe-usb:removable-media plug to the woe-usb:removable-media slot in order to enable USB devices to be mounted automatically by WoeUSB.

  1. Search for woeusb in Ubuntu Software and click it to go to the woe-usb screen.

  2. Click the Permissions button.

  3. Toggle the Read/Write files on removeable storage devices slider from OFF to ON as shown in the below screenshot.

  4. Authenticate with your user password when the Authentication Required window pops up.
