While downloading Windows 10 OS from hp cloud recovery download tool, it showing "error writing to usb disc" after download and unable to proceed further. OS is being downloaded on another notebook with Windows 7 for creating bootable flash drive. Same error is coming even after trying with different USB ddrives.

Try disabling Antivirus software. I was having this same problem until I disabled Trend Micro Worry Free Buisness Security on the workstation that was trying to run the HP Cloud Recovery Download Tool. USB Access control was stopping the write. Worked fine with Antivirus off.
