I am unsure how to solve this beyond changing the permissions to 777 across the board but  since I have to use FAT32 for this (UEFI) I dont know if itll work right.

Let me know if anyone knows what the solution is.

How exactly did you transfer the ISO image to the USB stick? Please provide the verbatim command(s).
