Use this tool to create the USB

download

Hopefully you have an .iso file of your Installation.

Are you using the USB on the left side which is next to the DC port ?

I have the iso file. I have already used that tool and it did not work. Plus I read that that tool formats to NTFS which what I have read the USB boot disk needs to be fat32

There is a way to disable the formatting option in the tool . So you could use DISKPART to format the USB drive and just use the tool to transfer the files over from the ISO. Im trying to figure out what I did.

A program like Winrar or 7z can get the files from an iso. Thatshow I have done it using

Do you have UEFI disabled ?

enable Legacy (BIOS) Mode, enabling the UEFI Compatibility Support Module (CSM) and disable both Boot / Fast Boot and Security / Secure Boot Control.
