"install now" on windows 7 home premium provides me with "no device.."

Hello, i have read up on this error, but i can't seem to find the solution . I know this post is common, but i feel i really do need assistance. The message comes up as "no device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK". I have no clue on what to do, and everything i've tried hasn't worked. I'm open to all solutions. Also, here is my builld: AMD Athlon II X4 740, HIS Radeon HD 7770, Apex SK-393-C - System Build - PCPartPicker. I also have a 500gb seagate harddrive.
This message occurs after the first screen, after "install now".

Where do you buy your Windows 7 DVD from?

I'm using a bootable usb drive. I got the .iso from mydigitalriver, i think. My dvd drive decided to crap out, so i used this method instead. Also, is the main problem from the .iso or from the lack of me installing drivers?

The problem is mainly a bad ISO.

So if i purchase a new dvd drive and use the DVD to install windows 7, it will resolve the device problem? Is there anyway to remedy the current method i'm using?

Double-check to see that you are booting off a USB2.0 port, not USB3.0.

Write a confirmed ISO (by size) to stick using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive.
