That makes me wonder about Win2flash since a poster here recently had the same error using flash stick created by W2F to install XP.

An even easier method is to use Ultra ISO trial version to write the ISO to formatted flash using Bootable tab.

Or try the method I use successfully for Kingston Data Traveler: Format primary, copy Windows 7 files into root, boot from Boot Menu at startup.

You can even add other files this way, keep Win files in folder, spill them out into root when you want to boot them.

Did you use a Windows Disc to make you winflash image or did you try to use files from a working install?

if u r using windows 7 iso image and copying it to usb using wintoflash,this problem is coming,even i faced it too,i have a hp flash,i simply copy paste iso files in flash,n go for booting,but my friend has kingston flash,but this method does not work,he needs to use wintoflash.
there are 2 ways.
1.go to tasks,and then copy the shall work.
2.use magic disk,to load image in some virtual drive,then format usb in my computer in fat32 format,then come to wintoflash,n copy(it will again format during this)...and even if this does not work,then go to BIOS,set ur boot preference to usb and even if this does not work,see in BIOS if u have AHCI/IDE option,change it to IDE temporarily,n then try.
or even if still this all does not work,tell me,i have a very simple way to make bootable windows7 dvd disk.
