I do not see why not, because if an I-817 application was filed for you (and approved) that only would have given you 2 years of legal presence (kind of like a visa, not like a greencard). Even if an I-130 petition was filed on your behalf years ago, it should have no effect on your current "intent".

However, if you have a parent or spouse who is a U.S. legal permanent resident or a U.S. citizen, then that would cause the Dept of State to possibly infer "immigrant intent" & thus could make it more difficult to obtain a B-2 visa in the future.
