What are you trying to do?

Step 1 of 4 of what?

Burn a disk that would work for a clean install? You don't need any type of USB tool for that.

Did you download X17-58997.ISO?

Maybe you didn't complete download of the ISO. Try again.

If the tool still doesn't work then use ImgBurn to burn the image at 4x speed, or Universal USB Installer to write to stick.

I did the factory restore and everything is back to working perfectly now. Thanks for all the help everyone!
