What you're paying for is the licence key, that also has the USB installer. Even if you don't get the USB installer but have the licence key, you can create your own Windows 10 installer using Windows Media Creation Tools. During the installation process, you can use the licence key you have previously acquired.

Well its the actual physical copy and a real usb drive that comes with it, with it on there the pre-installer...so as long as it reads thattt drive i should be back up in a few days. And no i cant create media...the 1909 downloaded iso from the windows site is corroupt or something...it says the media drivers are missing on starting the installer...i mounted the iso to it in fat32..it reads it it just dosent work....

I forgot to add, if the installer is for the older version you can recreate the installer with said Media Creation Tools. To note, we're currently on 1909 for Windows 10.

Not really.

If you used Windows Media Creation Tools(after downloading the executable from Microsoft) then you should be able to see a 1909 in the executable's filename - meaning that it's version 1909.

If you didn't use the tool, how did you create your installer? Where did you source the installer's ISO(from)?

Everything you need is included within Media Creation Tools. No need to be in Linux to create your own USB installer.
