Now here is how I put an ISO on to a stick that has been prepared as you have.

I use 7-zip and extract the ISO to the USB stick.

7-Zip
Okay, and it turns out i was using a 32-bit iso on a 64-bit laptop. Would that affect it at all?

You will get a 32 bit Win 7 installed instead of a 64 bit Win 7 installed.

The 32bit version will install and run fine. I've done it.

Did you extract the ISO to the USB stick?
The USB stick should have almost 4 GB used now.

You are now ready to boot from the USB stick and install Win 7.

An important question is: Do you want to 100% delete everything off of the disk to which you will be installing Win 7?
