You have to change boot disk PRIORITY ( not boot disk sequence ) to list the usb stick 1st. After the 1st reboot of the install you have to change it back to the hard drive 1st and the usb 2nd.
Or it will just keep booting from the stick over and over again.

First you need to make the USB flash stick bootable by writing the Win7 ISO to it using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu.

Then access the one-time BIOS Boot menu key at boot given in Theog's post to see if it registers, possibly under HD's.

If not borrow a USB DVD drive, or take out the HD to place alone in another computer to install, then SysPrep to move HD to another computer before moving back to target machine.
