The way to go is to

  1. Download the official Windows 10 iso
  2. Plug the usb, and check where it is using df -h or in your Disk Utility app in the Device: /dev/sdb section. If it happens to be mounted, unmount <path/to/partition> or press the stop button in Disk Utility.

   sudo dd bs=4M if=$HOME/Downloads/Win10_2004_English_x64.iso of=/dev/sdb status=progress oflag=sync
  1. Done!
