Windows 7: Windows Boot Manager error 0xc00000e9

Win 7 Ultimate x64
Windows Boot Manager error 0xc00000e9

Hey guys, trying to install Win 7 Ultimate x64 on my roommates laptop. It was having severe issues booting into 7 already so I decided to just wipe it and re-install. I started with a DVD copy and upon boot he realized that his DVD drive was broke. FML. But we can boot from USB so I go buy a large flashdrive and DL a copy of Windows 7 and make it boot-able. So I plug it in and when it starts to load windows files it makes it about 10% and stops.

Then throws an error 0xc00000e9

"An unexpected I/O error has occurred"

Now I know my USB is good, I just bought it. The DVD Drive is messed up but its not being used in any way. It's an older Sony vaio, Core 2 Duo, 2gb ram, the model is burnt off the bottom.

Where did you get Windows 7? How was it written to stick? How is it being activated?

Use the latest official installer ISO written to stick with Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown menu.
