Microsoft Windows .com creation download. Extract files to my usb patriot 32gb drive. I then click setup in the drive and create a windows iso and leave that iSo image on the usb drive. Then take to my computer and try it out. Nothing boots.

No, you don't save the ISO to the flash drive.

  1. Download the MediaCreation tool .exe
  2. Run it, from an Admin account
  3. "Create installation media for another PC"
  4. Select "USB flash drive"
  5. Next
All outlined in this:

In Windows 10 clean install tutorial, posted by @USAFRet , 4. and 5. are exactly about how to put installation on flash drive and select desired Windows 10 flavor. Flash drive will get formatted clean in result and tool will copy all required files on it.

What exactly didn't worked?

No. But you must select USB flash drive as boot drive. Your computer BIOS must have shortcut key for boot menu. Usually F8...F12, depends from particular BIOS - must be pressed after turning computer on or after reboot. A list with bootable drives with your flash drive mentioned in it must appear. Select flash drive from list and press Enter.
