I've already tried media writer and MultiWriter to burn the iso to the usb but it keeps appearing as unallocated space in gparted ,I'm not sure if that's normal. Also whenever I use the gui of winusb it always gives me an error 32512 and when I use the terminal using the command --format it gives me an error that I have no bootable partition even if I set the flag to boot in gparted. They have all the same result, whenever I try to boot the usb it flashes then returns me back to fedora. I'm at a loss please help me

Welcome to ask.fedora. First, what happens when you try to use that flash drive on a different computer? I ask because it's always possible that it's not good. Also, WinUSB is a Windows program so you'll need to find a Windows forum for help with it. Last, if you're trying to create a LiveUSB, it needs to be formatted as VFAT, just as it was when you first bought it.

For windows 7 - just format flash in ntfs and set a boot flag (u can do this in gparted etc.). Then just copy all files from iso to usb (This works for Legacy BIOS systems)
