USB isn't being detected

If your running  Solus does Unetbootin work for you?

Well WoeUSB worked, and everything is set up now, so this topic can be closed.

Okay guys, so, I flashed a Windows 64bit ISO image on to a sandisk 16GB USB drive using Etcher, and when I go into the boot menu on BIOS, I don't see the disk detected. What do I do? Thanks

Could be the format of the drive, or etcher I have had issues with in the past. Have you tried another USB / another flashing software? I would recommend Rufus or YUMI.

Currently I am on Linux and Rufus doesn't work on Solus for me, even with Wine. I'll try Yumi. How would I change the format of the driive?

Edit: I tried turning off secure boot and turned on legacy support. Now it's detected, but when I boot into it, it just shows some text, then the lenovo logo, and then boots into Linux again. 

Edit 2: I am reflashing it onto the same drive using WoeUSB. I will boot up again and report back with results.
