Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Burn another using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

I had the same problem and this is how I solved it. (Now I tried 2 different solutions at the same time and I am not sure which one actually solved the problem. So let me mention both approaches.)

1. Instead of using an automated solution like WiNToBootic to create the bootable USB thumb drive I used the most commonly used manual method.

2. I noticed that the thumb drive was formatted using FAT32. Which I reformatted using NTFS before making it bootable and copying the Windows 7 setup files into it.

Hope this will help if you are struggling with the same issue.
