The machine has no DVD drive, and for some reason when I try to boot from flash stick (I followed one of the tutorials), it said something along the lines of "No bootable media found."
Probably because the flash drive wasn't prepared properly...

It's pretty simple really, but you have to do it from a Win7 machine...

1) Format the flash drive with fat32

2) Copy the win7 files over to the flash drive
If you're working from DVD must drag and drop the entire DVD content
If you're working from an ISO, you have to extract the files first.

3) Now from the flash drive, make a copy of the BOOT folder on the desktop
This part's easy... just drag it over and drop it.

4) Open this new boot folder in a command shell...
WinKey+R -> CMD -> OK

5) Type BOOTSECT /NT60 Z: <= supstitute the flash drive's actual letter for the Z

That's it... you should be good to go.
