I used this guide to prepare my usb using Diskpart

HOW TO: Install Windows 7 from a USB stick

then just copied the files extracted from the ISO to the usb, and booted the netbook from usb.

You'll need to boot the installer using the Dell F12 one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

It should be listed under USB, Removable or HD's.

If not it isn't bootable and can be made so easiest using trial version of UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive.

Then boot to Custom install, use Drive Options to delete all partitions, click Next for installer to create/format install partition and begin. Illustrated steps here: Clean Install Windows 7
