it won't work for me I've tried but it reports "non system disk" insert appropriate disk.
In that case, use the other partition manger. DiskGenius ( aka partitionguru). The link is on the booted media desktop.

Rt click the disk and select convert to MBR.

How did you "install" diskgenius onto the usb? Did you just copy it?

It has to run within an OS of some kind. Usually that will be from winpe. It will make bootable usb stick for you:
