Are you using the Elevated CMD prompt? Option Two, Step Three.

Well, I'm a beginner and my English is not so good, but I will try my best to describe my question.
I had learned the installation steps but I'm puzzled by the WARNING .
Here,
  • 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.
I'm wondering that, how can I create a 32-bit flash drive in a 64-bit installation while I can only create a 64-bit flash drive if my current installation is also 64-bit?
Thanks very much!

Hello Kylee, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It means that you can create a 32-bit USB in both a 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7, but will only be able to create a 64-bit USB in a 64-bit Windows 7.

So, that means:

64-bit installation + 64-bit ISO = 64-bit flash drive
64-bit installation + 32-bit ISO = 32-bit flash drive
32-bit installation + 32-bit ISO = 32-bit flash drive
32-bit installation + 64-bit ISO = unable to create the flash drive

Is that correct?

And question two: in some very early replys, there was a talk about E:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt60 H:
but I can't see this instruction in the installation steps. Is this instruction a optional or necessary?

Yeah, that part was just redundant, so it was removed from the steps in the tutorial.
