Hi, there guys, I just built my first pc and I'm new to all this stuff I need to do and im confused on somethings. Once I flash the bios with the iso is my mobo not going to get damaged or anything if I have two different files in my flash drive?
 
Just downloading Windows' ISO onto USB drive (same applies to BIOS ISO) will do notjhing, you'll need to use this ISO to create bootable USB drive to perform the task. Microsoft provides such a tool, Media Creation Tool, and it will wipe your USB clean. I suppose same applies to the app which will "burn" BIOS ISO to that USB drive.

One thing at a time.
You can create the Win 10 install, and then copy the BIOS update onto the same flash drive.

Or, simply have more than one flash drive. They're cheap.
so you are saying i have to do it in that order to have both files on a flash drive to be able to use it to update my pc?

I found that I can buy a usb drive with a windows 10 home installed in it on amazon. Would you guys recommend I do that since im obviously not tech-savvy?
Actually, no.
It is strongly recommended to create a Win 10 install with the most recent thing from MS.
Creating one today will be Win 10 v1903.
No telling how old that USB might be.

What you're paying for is the license. The install is available from MS for free.

i have another question about windows 10. let's say I get to that point where plug in my flash drive with the iso and then it shows windows 10 and finally asking me for the product key. Will buying the digital windows 10 give me an email with the product key?

It should, yes.

And you can install it now, and apply a valid license key later.

I don't know what u mean by apply the key later? Also is license key and product key the same thing? It will give me the 25 digits either way right? I just want to be .double sure before i purchase this for 100 bucks. Thanks for the replies.

No no it won't harm anything. I've done many things like these.
