Windows 7: Dual boot Windows 7 (7057) and Windows Vista

I followed the advice from this link:

How To: Install Windows 7 Beta from a USB Key! | Maximum PC

Essentially booting from a USB drive, I used my iPod to carry the Windows 7 files and about 25% into the loading process where it's loading the files initially during the boot it says there is an I/O error with the iPod.

I know that there isn't anything wrong with the system because I have re-tested copying files back and forth from the iPod back on Vista and there seems to be no problem, I tested it with an XP system as well.

Any suggestions? My DVD burner is stuffed so it's unlikely to work that way and the files are too big for any USB drive I have currently.
