Re-install manjaro xfce

I have messed up my installation and want to do a fresh install. Can’t seem to find an answer. I have manjaro on a usb flash drive. When i boot from usb it just loads like normal, no option to re-install or repair?
Thank you in advance

The first time i had a windows machine, it loaded from usb into live environment.
I can’t seem to access the live environment, it just loads straight in like normal. I have boot order set to usb first that doesn’t work. Tried manually selecting from boot menu. I create the iso with

sudo dd bs=4M if=/home/estaban/Downloads/manjaro-xfce-21.0.6-210607-linux510.iso of=/dev/sdb1 status=progress oflag=sync

Thank you

This might be a bit beyond me. I don’t really understand terms like binding etc

You have defined a wrong target in your syntax, target should be the device /dev/sdb, not the partition /dev/sdb1. Details see here:
