Everything goes fine, but in the end I get this error every time one the GUI install as well as in terminal:

Mounting target filesystem...
Applying workaround to prevent 64-bit systems with big primary memory from being unresponsive during copying files.
Copying files from source media...
Installing GRUB bootloader for legacy PC booting support...
Installing for i386-pc platform.
Installation finished. No error reported.
Installing custom GRUB config for legacy PC booting...
Resetting workaround to prevent 64-bit systems with big primary memory from being unresponsive during copying files.
/usr/bin/woeusb: line 1676: echo: write error: Invalid argument
The command "exit 0" failed with exit status "1", program is prematurely aborted

Any suggestions to solve this?

  • What are you formatting the USB to? Maybe try formatting it to NTFS first. An idea from another woeusb question. – crip659 Dec 28 '19 at 16:45

Ignore the error, USB should still boot fine.

It turns out the USB drive was successfully written. Only some cleanup process crashed causing further writes on the same session to crash as well.
