I made a bootable win10 with winsetupfromusb but the computer doesn't recognize the USB at bootup

Very likely your computer is one of those that (for some strange reasons) has issues with MBR style devices if the firmware is set to UEFI only (maybe a DELL?) or that (again for strange reasons) doesn't "like" the grub4dos bootcode (Insyde BIOS?).

In any case for Windows 10 you would be probably better served by either Rufus:



WINNTSETUP (but if you choose this latter there is an initial learning curve to create the PE in which to run it):



If you want to solve the problem with winsetupfromusb, you may want to try (if you are using a UEFI firmware) to enable the CSM (Comparibility Support Module, in practice BIOS, if you have this option) and/or try to change boot order (nowadays on most computer there are two ways to boot from USB, onechanging the boot order in the firmware and one changing this setting on-the-fly at boot time prssing a hotkey - like F8 or F11/F12 and sometimes oine of the two methods works and the other one doesn't).
