I am running windows 8.1 64 bit. My daughter's computer is Windows 7 64 bit. She needs to reload windows so I chatted with a guy at Microsoft and he guided me to download the Windows 7 64 bit ISO file and the Windows 7 USB DVD download tool. When I run the download tool it copies the ISO files onto the USB drive but will not or cannot run bootsect.exe to make it bootable. I would appreciate any advice or suggestions.
Thank you.
