Follow this guide. It is easy you just download the windows.iso and then use terminal commands to make a windows 10 boot USB drive. You don't have any other windows 10 drive around?I’ll look into thay
I’m playing with the idea of installing win10 on my samsung 970 evo plus in an m.2 external enclosure (you mentioned these before). Would you have any idea how to start with this from macos ?
Anyway once done restart your computer and press f10 when you start and used the uefi usb flash drive to boot from and then make sure to choose the Samsung usb drive to install to in the install process. Make sure not to install to your MacOS. It might be safest to just remove your MacOS temporarily so you don't install to the wrong drive.
Most new PCs don't come with DVD drives anymore. So it can be a pain to install Windows on a new computer. Luckily, Microsoft makes a tool that you can use to install Windows from a USB storage drive (or "thumbdrive" as they are often called). But what if you don't have a second PC for setting...
I have a few external OS like linux and also a Mojave and Catalina Backups to USB as well as a second windows 10 they all work fast and are solid. Good luck.
Make sure to update your Samsung 970 evo plus to the latest firmware after you install windows 10 as you cannot update it in MAC OS. Also if you just get the usb 3.1 external enclouse even if it has usb-c connector it will only be around 425mbs read and write speed.
If you want the fast 2700 speed you have to get a m.2 thunderbolt to usb-c to get the better speeds and they are costly I believe.
Make sure it is the NVMe interface as well for the enclousre.
