dd cloned ntfsNTFS partition not working

I have a MacbookMacBook Pro with OS X 10.10 and a Windows 7 installed with BootcampBoot Camp install.

I just bought a 64 GB flash drive that I would like to put a bootable copy of Windows on, to reestablish the hard drive as OS X only, and figured it would be easiest to just clone the bootcampBOOTCAMP partition that I already have.

I formatted the USB to GUID/NTFS and used dddd to clone it:

dd if=/dev/rdisk0s3 of=/dev/rdisk2s2 bs=512 conv=noerror,sync

After 12 hours it finished, and does not work. Windows displays the partition as "RAW"

Anyone have any tips?
