    Happy to help.
    Rufus is been immense help on this end and yes it took a little extra effort here & there for myself to learn the ropes of it at the start.

    Rufus v3.7 Beta Released (August 26, 2019)
    Download / (Github)
    Changelog:
    3.7 Beta
    • Finalize persistent partition support for Debian and Ubuntu:
      • Debian with persistence should work out of the box with any recent Debian Live ISO.
      • Ubuntu with persistence should also work IF using a post 2019.08.01 ISO (such as daily-live)
        Note that, because of bug #1489855, trying to use persistence with Ubuntu ISOs that were released before August 2019 will only result in rescue mode during boot - You have been warned!
      • Other distros may work with persistence as long as they use a Debian-like or Ubuntu-like method, and, in the case of Ubuntu-like, if they use casper with the #1489855 bugfix.
    • Add cheat mode (Alt) to switch between percent completed/transfer rate/time remaining on someoperations [EXPERIMENTAL]
    • Report SuperSpeed+ devices in the log (Come on USB-IF, just add "Ludicrous Speed" already!)
    • Fix UI checkboxes (Extended label, Fixes for old BIOSes) being cleared on START
    • Fix Can't mount GUID volume regression when creating Windows To Go drives [#1351]
    • Fix Volume label is invalid error with empty labels on Windows 7 [#1352]
    • Fix stale progress bar during standalone ext2/ext3 formatting
    • Disable ISO mode for Pop_OS
    • Other cosmetic and internal improvements
