Fedora uses sudo by default.
sudo su will let you become root

Now the file manager is showing an "UEFI_NTFS" and a blank "Windows USB" where the flash drive was

If you didn't get no errors, see if it will boot.

I tried to boot from the UEFI flash drive and got this in big yellow letters:

'\efi\boot\boot x64.efi': [14] Not Found

also sdb split in two:

Code:
sdb               8:16   1  28.7G  0 disk 
├─sdb1            8:17   1  28.7G  0 part /run/media/madmin/Windows USB
└─sdb2            8:18   1   512K  0 part /run/media/madmin/UEFI_NTFS

did it show you a directory tree of sorts that you can navigate through it and look for a file to try booting it? (mine does)

It hadn't, but I just went through the process again and is says target device should be bootable now.
I wonder if it is because there were actually files to be overridden this time that it worked. Another question I have is why the graphical utility had a maximum file size but the terminal command did not. I'll try booting now and let you know the results.

I didn't get that error thankfully and it booted, I'm sending this from my phone now. I'm sitting at the choose an option menu. My next step according to your earlier suggestions is to run chkdsk. My choices are to do a recovery or install.

recovery first, to see if you can fix your mbr and boot list, you're going to lose linux grub but that is be gotten back..

Unfortunately it needs a serial key to install which makes this basically useless. I'll try to fund a recovery specific windows 10 iso.

did you try recovery yet?

also I just hit skip on that key thing and install and they have the key on the server with win 10, second time I had to install win10 it skipped the key thing and it is still a valid install os. but if you install you might lose your stuff, so again try repair to fix your mbr and boot list.

Ntfs doesn' have the file size limit that Fat32 has and the file size limit is exceded by the iso. The graphic utility defaults to fat32 which can be overridden when done from cli

Repair failed, and I hear you on the installation precaution. I'm at a command prompt and I ran chkdsk but it only processed 7 files. Are these just on the usb?
