Dell Vostro 3750 Getting Operation System Not Found Trying to Install Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS From USB Stick

Trying to install Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS from the current .iso just downloaded from the official site 20 minutes ago. 

The machine is a Dell Vostro 3750 with a 2nd-gen Core i3 & 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD & running Win 10 21H1 64-bit.

I made a bootable USB drive using Balena Etcher per the instructions on the Ubuntu Desktop site.

When I try to boot to the USB, I'm getting "Operation System Not Found."

I'm looking to set up dual-boot on this machine. Google search has not been any help so far. Anyone know how to do this? 

After posting this to the Ubuntu group on Facebook, I saw something online about using Rufus instead of Balena. This formats the USB installer stick as FAT32.

 Rufus / MBR, FAT32 partitioning & formatting worked. Attempting install now.

Install appears to be proceeding normally. I'm going for dual-boot on the Vostro so either Win 10 or Ubuntu can be run at boot.
