Thank you ChorreraTownTech ,

I have checked that reddit as well but its 3 years old and not all the links work - i did do a diskpart clean of the USB without change. 

This is a Offline Deployment created with the Kace instructions: https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-deployment-appliance/kb/4230503/create-usb-offline-deployment 

I don't have the option to format the USB as FAT32 just NTFS and ExFat, through windows.

Hello jg1155,

I am sorry that the Reddit post did not work for you. Would it be possible for you to create a support case so that the Quest support engineers can assist you with that task?

These are the numbers if you would like to create the support case via phone.

Thank you,

it happened to me once years ago
Using a different thumb drive solved it.
