I did. The tool kept complaining about not being able to run bootsect, that's what brought me to this forum in the first place. From googling the error message there was a link to a post by eql2006 on these forums.

I had the same error message from the original post and tried the USB key anyway in the new computer. It worked fine even though it said it was not bootable

No tutotrial há essa orientação: (Microsoft Store Online)
"WHEN CREATING A BOOTABLE USB DEVICE,I AM GETTING AN ERROR ABOUT BOOTSECT

To make the USB device bootable, you need to run a tool named bootsect.exe. In some cases, this tool needs to be downloaded from your Microsoft Store account. This may happen if you're trying to create a 64-bit bootable USB device from a 32-bit version of Windows. To download bootsect:
Login to your Microsoft Store account to view your purchase history
Look for your Windows 7 purchase.
Next to Windows 7, there is an "Additional download options" drop-down menu.
In the drop-down menu, select "32-bit ISO."
Right-click the link, and then save the bootsect.exe file to the location where you installed the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (e.g. C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Apps\Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool).
Once the file has been saved, go back to the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool to create your bootable USB device."

Entretanto, OBVIAMENTE, nenhum de voc~es está utilizando uma copia do windows 7 original, portanto, devem fazer o download deste arquivo no site: Create a Bootable Windows 7 x64 Install Flash Drive from 32-bit Windows | kyleabaker.com

Eu estava com o erro, fiz o download do arquivo, movi para a pasta do programa, e ele acabou de criar o pendrive inicializável, GG
Aproveitem!

Able to install 32bit but not 64bit
So I messed up my laptop, it was Win 7 home 64bit. I formatted it and do a clean install, but I can only install 32bit. When I try to install 64bit, I get "hardware problem and installation could not be complete" what's that?
