    check your downloaded version upon integrity. Might be corrupted

    Something goes wrong when preparing USB drive, by the way I guess you are using a USB flash drive, maybe your program is not working well for some reason. Try Rufus, an excellent tool to accomplish this, and if you are still having issues switch to another flash drive.
