if you use 'dd' or another method to put a fedora 24 netinstall on the USB stick, then the creator sees the USB device.

i've just noticed another thing: the w10 device is mounted as /dev/sdb , no partitions are involved.
and i remember the original creator wanted one usb stick with one partition formatted as fat32.
maybe it's related.

I have same problem after writing dragonfly bsd's .img. and also there are no partitions in the usb stick.

I have the exact same thing.

Sorry guys, the tool is not intended for usage with anything else than Linux (and especially Fedora) installation and live media.
