I don't know whether Pete Batard (RUFUS' developer) have read your 

A natural question would be: Were you able to use the same settings 
before, with a prior version of RUFUS, achieving the expected result?

If you were using a prior version of RUFUS with different settings, 
have you tried those settings with the new version? Have you tried 
those settings again with the older version?

Were you using the same data (e.g. ISO image) as source for your USB 
storage device?

Were you using the same BIOS settings before? For instance, while 
using the older version of RUFUS, were you selecting the same USB-ZIP 
as boot device in your BIOS? Have you tried other options?

In other words, if you were able to use RUFUS before and to achieve 
your goal, then what exactly changed? Just RUFUS' version?
