When you use Windows USB Media Tool and try to create a USB device to install Windows 7 in your computer, may be, you find a problem related bootsect. Keep reading to know, how you can solve this.

I had a problem years ago with Windows USB Media Tool when I created a Windows 7 usb drive. This problem was an error copying or executing bootsect.exe because the tool can't found in the computer or on the ISO of Windows.

This can be fix very easy, you only need to download:

And then, we need to copy in the next path:

C:\Users\<youruser>\AppData\Local\Apps\Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool\

Downloading and copying that be enough. After that, you can try to create the USB again and shouldn't have any problems.

Let me know how this goes, also, if you have some problems.
