I am having a problem in my Windows laptop, so I need to make a Windows 10 bootable to repair/restore it.

I am using a Mac for making the bootable for the PC. I downloaded the windows 10 .iso file and started bootcamp to make the bootable. The process seems to get hanged at "Downloading Windows support software" step. I tried keeping it overnight, no change in the progress bar. Just stuck there at 50/60%.

  • Why are you using Bootcamp to fix a 'real' Windows install? Why not just get the media creation tool [page opens a different location depending on what OS you visit it with] & use that

The problem got solved by formatting the disk.

I formatted the disk first in FAT format. Then the Boot Camp Assistant worked easily.
