Bootable usb to install windows 8.1 using windows 10

I have windows 10 installed, I want to create a usb bootable drive containing 8.1.

The normal tool to use this states that I do not have .net version 2 installed and fails to launch. is there another way in windows 10 to create a bootable usb drive?

thanks

Forget it, it appears that windows 10 does not enable .net by default, so not installed. Bit stupid, anyway enable this in Programs and Features” window, click on the link “Turn Windows features on or off”.

and then let it install. You can then run the windows usb/dvd boot tool.

Windows 10 installs only the latest version of the DotNET Framework by default. not the outdated versions still required for 'old' software.  That's why you have to install Version 2 separately.
