    Assuming you have copied the Partition Manager ISO file to the USB (and it sounds like you have).

    With the Windows 10 install USB plugged in, start EasyBCD. The File menu, Select BCD Store, OK to the warning scree, then select the USB Drive (double click the drive letter). In the filename: block type boot and click open, then type BCD and click open. That will get you into the BCD store on the Windows 10 USB install drive.

    Then click the Add New Entry Button. In the bottom half of the right side, click the ISO tab. In the Name: block, type MiniTool Partition Wizard. In Path:, browse to the minitool ISO file saved on the USB stick. Change Mode: to Run From Memory. Click Add Entry. That's it! If you want to see what the boot menu will look like, click the Edit Boot Menu button.

    That does not look like a bootable Windows 10 USB created by either the Media Creation Tool or an ISO downloaded from Microsoft tech bench.

    Open File Explorer, click on View menu. On the toolbar that opens, near the right side make sure these two options are checked: File name extensions and Hidden items. Then look at the USB stick again. If you have a single 32 bit or 64 bit USB created you should see something like:

    If you have a dual 32-bit and 64-bit USB created you should see about the same thing except instead of the sources folder you will have x86 and x64 folders, inside those folders will the be same layout as the screen capture above.

    Have you actually tried booting the computer from the USB stick?

    Yes, it's ok to wipe the disk because you are going to install Windows on it. I suggest just write one round of zero's to the disk.
