I've extracted the x1768997 into a flash drive?

The size is a bit smaller on each of the folders. The install.wim cannot be found. Will booting up without this item still work in upgrading win7? I still have the default, system, same files from an earlier time stored in a back up folder which I can't copy over to overwrite what's there because the system says it's in use. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It is nice of you to ask. I already have the X17-58997.ISO on a external drive. I want to install and put it on a flash drive?

My Sony computer may have a corrupted BIOS or the battery pack is preventing me from rebooting. I was lucky to be able to perform a factory reinstall of Windows 7. I also reinstalled Internet Explorer 11 and did the Windows updates, with numerous reboots. But a cold boot will not bring up my system.
