on usb using unetbootin for windows
dd if=/home/user/debian.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M; sync[/url]
You need to use the 'lsblk' command to determine the /dev/sdx , it may 'be sdb, sdc,..etc,
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda 8:0 0 698.7G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 34.3G 0 part
├─sda2 8:2 0 1K 0 part
├─sda3 8:3 0 34.4G 0 part
├─sda4 8:4 0 628.1G 0 part /
└─sda5 8:5 0 1.9G 0 part [SWAP]
sr0 11:0 1 1024M 0 rom
sdb 8:16 1 58.5G 0 disk
└─sdb1 8:17 1 58.5G 0 part[/code]
In this example above, the usb device is "sdb",

In that situation, Rufus or Etcher work quite well.
If your machine is 2015 or newer vintage, there is also a chance that Jessie won't support the video well, if at all, out of the box. : (
Edit: OK, Kaby Lake graphics. If it's like my Skylake (they share a similar architecture), you can get to a GUI on a desktop that will work with the crippled graphics, like lxde or xfce, then upgrade what you need from jessie-backports: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=131611 If you depend on wi-fi for your connection, you will need a firmware package to get it to work, and there's a chance that the driver will only be in the kernel you are trying to upgrade to (catch-22!)
Once you have full 3D acceleration, you can add GNOME if that's the desktop you were really going for.
Your other option is to try the next upcoming Debian release, Stretch, which is currently in its final form and now just getting bugs squished.
