You should be fine with 1GB for Arch, but hey, 16GB flash drives are like $5 today. To create a bootable flashdrive for Windows you'll need an 8GB+ flash drive.

 +[This handy script](https://​gitlab.com/​C0rn3j/​C0rn3j/​-/​blob/​master/​WindowsBootable.sh) does the below-described process:
  
 Format the flash drive with Gparted - Device > Create partition table - Set partition table to msdos.
