I created a bootable USB stick with Startup Disk Creator in Lubuntu 16.04. Here are some screenshots:

The problem is that created USB stick is not seen during PC boot - just like there is not any flash drive inserted. Disabling UEFI security boot doesn't help. There is no such a problem when I create bootable USB stick with Universal USB Installer in Windows. Does it look like a bug in Startup Disk Creator, or am I just doing something wrong?

  • IS legacy-boot (CSM) in your BIOS enabled?

  • Thank you, @mook765, turning on legacy-boot helped to boot from the flash drive.

This is wrong:

Partition type: Hidden HPFS/NTFS

The partition should be FAT32 (FAT16 may work too). So delete it and create new one. BTW you need a bigger one then size of the disk image if you want keep persistent changes.
