    Hey guys, I've been trying to write Windows 7 to my USB, and whenever I complete it, the end result is always that it failed to add bootsect.exe. I've even added a 32-bit bootsect in the same folder as Windows USB Tool's folder, and I still get the same result. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Okay, I've installed it and I think the ISO has finished. (The bar is fully green and it says "READY.") Do I have to do anything else?

    You're done. Exit Rufus and reboot your computer (or create a virtual machine) with the usb stick.

    I want to ask, what You want to do? Is it USB with installation files which You can later use like Windows installation source disk/USB stick or You want to install Windows to USB?
    These are two different things. Very different.
    And yet, Rufus is not necessary, but may be used.
    Furthermore. Rufus, especially the current final version, it is not always usable, there will be a problem, the penultimate version does not have this problem.
