What you describe sounds like that your installer has been broken somehow.

Personally I prefer Ventoy, an open source tool to create bootable USB
pendrives for ISO/WIM/IMG/VHD(x)/EFI files. You install Ventoy once and
add as many iso/wim/img/vhd(x ) files that fit on the USB pendrive.
After booting you can choose from a menu which distro you want to install.
