Find the copype.cmd batch file and execute the following command:

copype.cmd amd64 c:\temp\winpe_amd64

This will change the directory of the command prompt to the destination by default.

Copy the output to the root of the USB drive with the following command.

robocopy c:\temp\winpe_amd64\media x: /e /xd *-*

At this point, the USB drive should be ready to boot from.
