Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool - Unable to run bootsect

I'm trying to follow the clean install instructions here, I downloaded my iso from HeiDoc, but when the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool finishes, I see the following:

Status: Files copied successfully. However, we were unable to run bootsect to make the USB device bootable. If you need assitance with bootsect, please click the "Online Help" link above for more information.

What is the problem? I am using Windows 10 64-bit btw

Will Rufus work any better?

Yes you won`t have any problems with Rufus.

And another great program is Wintobootic.
