The media creation tool says it cannot be done. I tried twice with different drives.

Another person had the same trouble until the third time.

I ave has trouble with something like a too tight Windows firewall or something acting like it. so other apps at times cannot be installed.

I don't know if it's related but the MCT for Windows 8.1 failed for a poster and also for me.

What size is your USB flash drive?

 

What you've encountered is one of the reasons that I strongly discourage people from using the Media Creation Tool to directly create a bootable USB drive.  If anything "burps" at the end of the process you have to start all over again.

 

What I suggest is using the option to "Create media for another PC" (or however they're phrasing it these days) which downloads the current Windows 10 ISO file.  You can then use Rufus or the utility of your choice to create the bootable USB drive.

I just recognized  Brian from this forum's 'Brittech' and YouTube. I use your videos to learn from.

Anyway, following the forum's advice, I downloaded the ISO file and with Rufus, created a bootable flash drive.

So when an OS system becomes unstable and you troubleshoot to no avail,  you can use an image, refresh, or the install sick.  

 

I have a related opinion type question. Is converting from .ESD to .WIM something worth doing to use the DISM commands or just use one of the above?

Just for the record, I have absolutely no presence on YouTube whatsoever (other than as an occasional viewer).
