I have not tried with that particular image, nor do I have experience with that flash drive. To get the flash drive back to the default configuration, please read the linked FAQ. As to the system not booting from the USB after writing the image, it could be bios related. Check to see if secure boot is enabled, disable it if it is. As to Windows not seeing the partion on the USB drive, please remember that Windows only supports Windows drive formats, not foriegn drive formats that other OSs may use (EXT2/3/4, BTRFS, etc), so it is perfectly understandable that the drive shows up as unformatted.
FAQ #1927: “My Xgb pen drive was reduced to Ygb”.
