Using CMD to create boot usb need help

Not sure if this is where this belongs but i need help!! please!

I already extracted the ISO to a folder on my desktop and i already have the USB formatted to NTFS.

All i need to do now is make it a bootable device now but everytime i try to specify the folder on my desktop i get this error repeatedly.

cmd comes up starting with C:\Windows\System32>

i type this in in front of the aforementioned: C:\Windows\System32>C:\Users\Heavy Metal 2000\Desktop\Windows 7

Finale product looks liek above and i get this message what am i doing wrong?

" C:\Windows\System32>C:\Users\Heavy Metal 2000\Desktop\Windows 7 is not a recognized internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

Need to be able to access that file path in order to make a Boot USB afaik

  5. All you needed to do is extract ISO to your USB, open elevated command prompt, get into the usb root\boot folder (X:\boot) and type 'bootsect /nt60 X: /force /mbr' where X: is your USB's drive letter.
