If you want to burn Windows IoT Core on a microSD card to using with a Raspberry Pi 2, Microsoft states that you must do it using the WindowsIoImageHelper utility from a physical machine running Windows 10.  But what if you haven't installed Windows 10 on a physical PC yet?  Here's the trick: simply use a microSD to USB adapter, your VM will see it and you'll be able to burn Windows IoT Core without problems :-)

Thanks to an attendee at my Windows IoT Core talk at MSDEVMTL yesterday for sharing this trick.
