If you do and it's enabled, try disabling it and see if that helps.
That was one of the first things i turned off. Maybe its my USB drive? I have been reading its supposed to be fat32 and I checked and its NTFS. I made it using the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool by Microsoft and it dont give an option to change it . im not sure if it even matters im just out of options.

Can you try booting a different PC with the USB drive to test if it can be booted ?

You can look at this tutorial by Brink.
Option 2 / Step 6 has instructions for using Rufus which shows FAT32 can be selected.
It's for Win 10 but maybe creating a Win 7 flash stick would work the same ?

Did you try rebuilding the flash stick with Rufus and formatting it as FAT32 ?

In post #12 i asked if using Rufus might work for you to "bebuild" the flash stick as FAT32.
Did you ever try using Rufus to "rebuild" the flash stick ?
That's what i mean by "rebuild" - try Rufus.

How did you try to make it fat32 ?

If you can post screen prints of errors you see, that would help, see this tutorial:

Right now it seems your flash stick won't boot either of your PC's, right ?
If i had a flash stick like that I would re-format it and start over.
For you i think the easiest way is to first try Rufus.

Or, do you want to try re-formatting the stick as FAT32 using Windows Disk Management ?

No matter which way you go, everything on the stick now, will be deleted.

I think so

To all, this is why many of us won't click on external links.
