Laptop is not booting windows 7 from USB ?

Hi guys i have a weired situation here
My laptop i.e is acer travelmate 5742 is booting ubuntu or any other linux distro from usb but if I make live usb of windows 7 for installation it just stucks after logo screen and w8ng and w8ng for hours but nothing and if i plug out that same usb of live windows 7 and boot my other laptop from it , the other laptop just boots without any problem so it proves that usb and windows 7 on usb are perfectly fucntional and it also proves that i am booting usb on my laptop no. as i tried to boot linux distors and they work perfect but windows 7 is not ?

Mate just make a disk (DVD) I find it so much easier than fiddling with sticks. By the way did you get the right ISO for it??

Looking back at it it is really quite confusing as I took it that the OP was trying to install from a USB I didn't think you could boot from a USB or can you??

I think there might be a bit of a language problem too - personally I don't like using numerals in words it leads to confusion itself.

Linux distros (at least, some of them) are distributed in a form that is designed to allow them to be run from their installation media. The Linux folks don't mind you walking around with a portable version of their FREE OS.

MS Window is NOT designed to be run from installation media. MS does not want you walking around with a portable version of their OS.
