You have to write the confirmed ISO to a flash stick using the complicated DOS commands, or an easier program like UltraISO trial version or Universal USB Installer.

Then boot the stick under USB, Removable, or HD's.

I'd use the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first boot screen.

You'll format the flash stick before writing ISO to stick so anything already stored on it is gone.

Probably best for you to use UltraISO trial version: Install Ultra ISO, on File tab select Open ISO or Open DVD if that's all you have, on Bootable tab select Write Disk Image, click Format Button, Click Write button.

Now boot the stick by setting first to boot in BIOS setup, or using one-time BIOS boot menu key given on first BIOS screen. Stick should be listed under USB, Removable or HD's.

Follow these steps to install: Clean Install Windows 7
