I am currently running Windows 7 (Build 7201, 32-bit). I am facing a problem while performing a fresh install of Windows 7 RTM (64 bit) using an USB drive. To make the flash drive bootable, I need to run the bootsect utility. And it seems that you cannot run the 64-bit version of bootsect from inside a 32-bit host OS.
Any help would be appreciated.

I do not believe you can create a 64 bit install from a 32 bit version of the OS (or vice~versa, for that matter). There is a way around it using (a trial version of...) UltraISO.
