Install Win7 with no DVD, network, or USB?

My friend gave me a computer that had vista on it, but asked me to downgrade it to XP. I did, but I could not find audio and video drivers at all..
The computer is "everex impact gc3500"

So I want to put win7 on it. But, it doesn't have a dvd drive. I have the win 7 disk, iso, and the exe that I downloaded when I bought 7 with a student discount.. Will I be able to do it with just the .exe, or will I need to mount the iso?

Alright, I'll try using #2.. I tried booting from usb to install XP, but it wouldn't work. It would boot from it, but after the copying file display was done and the machine booted, it wouldn't work :S

Thanks, i'll get back to you.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS version update. If so, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Next in BIOS setup, set SATA controller to AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.

The flash stick might not have been written correctly so that you need to try another method. The one which always works for me is to install Ultra ISO trial version, on File tab Open ISO, on Bootable tab Write Disk Image, Format button, Write button. Boot under USB or HD's.

Try wiping the HD first before trying install: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Thanks for the help
I managed to install 7 with the .exe that I downloaded.. It included "setup 1/2.box". Worked without a hitch.

I'm glad that it had the drivers pre-packaged with 7; the onboard graphics and sound work. But sadly the front audio port doesn't work, which isn't a big deal as I know the user will have speakers.

I've bridge connection with my netbook and am updating it now. Also: I bloody hate the small netbook keyboards!!!
