Could not detect removable drive

Was not able to boot into Windows 7 installation.
Burned a Windows ISO to USB but wasn't able to detect the bootable device on multiple machines. Maybe my USB was incompatible, but do not take my word for it.

Etcher writes the image to the disk, like dd does. Windows images need post-processing and therefore cannot be made bootable by Etcher or any other image writer. Etcher documentation suggests you use microsoft's dedicated tool for the job.
