Etcher is used when creating a full install USB drive for Hog 4 OS v3.9.0 and newer.

Description/Explanation of Issue

This happens when the ISO file that Etcher is trying to use is already on the flash drive. The ISO file needs to not be on the flash drive. Etcher will create a bootable drive and mount the ISO file for you.
