I downloaded a Dell OS Recovery Windows image to install on my old Dell G3 that was with Linux since I bought it and removed Windows.

According to Dell website I could use “Startup Disk” (usb-creator) program on Ubuntu to install the Dell ISO images on my USB Thumb driver, but after selecting the .iso file nothing was displayed on screen.

Then I decided to run the “Startup Disk” program from terminal to understand what was going on:

# /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/usb-creator-gtk

I noticed the message: “Unable to find Joliet SVD”

isoinfo -J -R -l -i 7YXN5A08_Win10x64ROW_home.iso
isoinfo: Unable to find Joliet SVD

So, that is it, a known BUG reported 15 years ago and no solution!

Update: I also tried this solution: https://gist.github.com/roman-yepishev/68ce1d30096c350b8c6ee5e6b08a87e9 but didn’t work, during the USB boot a prompt “_” appears blinking in the top left corner of screen but the system doesn’t start
