Just select the option W – “extracting Windows installer” select the intended Windows 10 ISO, then the target drive.

There’s a few good answers to this question elsewhere on the Internet (including superuser). Here’s a short summary:

(Recent windows ISOs are not of the kind that can be dd’d into a USB stick and they’ll just boot (ElTorito). They are now UDF formatted.)
– Prepare the USB stick by wiping it and creating a new partition table with a FAT32 (or NTFS) partition;
– Copy all the contents of the windows ISO onto the USB stick’s partition;
– Install a bootloader using ms-sys;
