I am currently using Ubuntu 16.04. For a variety of reasons I am attempting to switch back to Windows 10. Unfortunately, I don't know how to burn the iso file onto my USB drive (formatted as fat32, got renamed to Windows USB in the process)...and I managed to create a new mess in the process.
I downloaded a WinUSB fork from github (https://github.com/slacka/WinUSB) and attempted to burn it from there. It might have worked but I closed it out, foolishly thinking something had gone awry. When I tried to restart the process, I received
Installation failed !
Exit code: 256
Error: Partition(s) on /dev/sdb are being used
on a popup. I deleted everything in the USB (completely empty now, with 7.8 gb of space) and tried again several times but to no avail. I've made a pretty decent mess of things and would love to start from scratch but I don't know how and I don't know how to clear out the partitions. My endgame is to just get the iso file onto my USB but I'm well and stuck. Would greatly appreciate any help.
I apologize if this belongs in the Ubuntu help forums, and for any lack of information. I'll gladly help fill in any details tomorrow...it's late, I'm frustrated, and I want to get as much of this down while my memory of this is still fresh.
