If you have a minimum 4GB USB memory stick, put Win7 on it, it will load faster and no burn errors.

The Seven Forums tutorial explains how to do it.

How to Create a Windows 7 Installation USB Key

This is easy and fast to put on a memory stick, less time then burning to a DVD. It will also install Win7 faster.
I didn't know this could've been done, would this work with an external hard drive? I'm going to toss this Forums Link to my Teacher Dave. We're running Win7 at school, and we all want to learn more.

Thanks for the replies and help guys! I learned somethings while doing this!
Yes it can.

Windows 7 installation hangs up
