Not sure if this is a good fit in here but there are less active discussions in Linux section. Simply put, I need some advice to create a bootable USB (Linux OS) on Windows 10 laptop. I can see there are many tools to do this but already wasted hours for trying some of them.

It says 'no bootable device' found with a black screen when booting from the USB created by Rufus

Different distros create their downloadable images in a variety of ways. Most distros will give some instructions on how to create cd/dvd/usb's so it is always advisable to read information on the distros home site.

You may find that " Etcher " will help you to create a useable usb stick,

What distro are you trying to put on the usb ? Did you get the download from the distros home site ?

Follow Mint's guide then or use Etcher.

When you download a .iso you should verify that the image downloaded correctly,

Thanks for the help. I re-downlaoded the ISO and check it, which is valid. Then I read the official guide and using Etcher to do the job. Everything works fine but it was stuck at burning process. And it seems a common problem. Fortunately, I am unfortunate enough to find an app called Liteboot to finish the job after paying a few bucks.
