Firstly, have you pressed the Windows key & typed "installer" in the search box?
As I have said above, this will show up the packages if it is on your system
Secondly: have you tried the `su -c` or `sudo` prefixed commands I advised above?

I only say that because I don't know how to burn to a USB stick.
Copying the image to a partition will not work.
If you are running from your live USB, you need to open up a terminal directory and run these commands:
This will show a list of the drives ("block devices") attatched to your system -- your internal hard drive and the USB stick.
These will probably show up as /dev/sda
(with numbers to show the individual partitions).
Then plug in the USB stick you wish to burn the installer .iso to (as I said, download a non-live image to prevent any confusion).
If you run the `lsblk` command again, it will show up an extra device with the drive letter to which it has been assigned.
Presuming you only have one internal drive this will be /dev/sdc
(if not, remember the letter for the next command).
Then you can burn this to your (new) USB stick by running this command in the terminal:
sudo dd if=<name of the installer .iso image> of=/dev/sdc bs=4096;sync
Replace <name of the installer .iso> with the name of the installer .iso file (if you start typing the name and press the <Tab> key, it will finish the name for you).
You must be absolutely sure
that you have the right drive letter or you may wipe your hard drive.
Alternatively, you can burn the image from Windows using the USBWriter program:
I am very surprised that the Debian live environment does not include the installer (I have never used a Debian live .iso so I don't know for sure if it is included).
Finally: vanilla Debian really is not suitable for newcomers to GNU/Linux -- it is aimed at users with some experience.
If you are a newbie I recommend looking at Mint instead:
EDIT: Don't bother with debbootstrap
-- it is not for newbies.
