Hello EE,

I have a bootable USB devices that installs the Windows 7 OS on systems. It boots up in WinPE and launches a MDT task that installs the OS and other business application.
I need to duplicate this USB device but had no Luck. I tried copying all the files from one device to the other.
Then I tried making the USB device active then ran BOOTSECT /NT60 and copied all the files and that still didn’t work.

Anyone know what I'm missing?

You would need to create an image of the USB device (is it a disk or memory stick btw) and restore that image onto another USB device. How was the USB device created that you use?

You need to clone, rather than copy files, there are a few options for cloning drives, here's some:

I was able to correct this on my own. I didn't set the USB device to boot correctly. I was using the BOOTSECT /NT60 command from the wrong path. I also used this website as a reference.
