intgr, what do you mean by "deleted my Linux EFI boot configuration"? Do you mean it deleted your boot menu entry? Anyway, please fill a detailed bug report on the project's github page. I have no clue why it could alter EFI settings and not boot Windows installer. It doesn't have such code.

Beware, this didn't work for me. Every time I tried booting off this, it deleted my Linux EFI boot configuration (which I needed to restore using Arch Linux installer). The Windows 10 installer wouldn't boot off USB regardless of whether I tried EFI or legacy boot.

Thanks! Updated the package

Done. Now it also searches in /usr/share/windows2usb/uefi-ntfs.img

Any chance you could update the script to look for it in a FHS compliant location like /usr/share or /usr/lib?

They do, see It's linked in the description of windows2usb.

Yes, I couldn't find a good way to build it from source, and they don't seem to have prebuilt releases, either.

You forgot to bundle uefi-ntfs.bin from Rufus project. windows2usb assumes it's presense in the same directory, but you can patch dirpath variable assignment, it's used only for uefi-ntfs.bin currently.
