1) Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

2) USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Did you format the USB flash drive with a NTFS file system first instead of the default FAT32?

In addition:
  • You can only create a 64-bit Windows 7 bootable USB flash drive if your current Windows 7 installation is also 64-bit.
  • You can create a 32-bit Windows 7 bootable USB flash drive if your current Windows 7 installation is 32-bit or 64-bit.
Take a look at Shawn's tutorial: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Method Two, Step 7
Replace clean with CLEAN ALL.

Miss out the bootsect part - it is not necessary.

More interesting is why you are getting an issue with bootsect.
