Windows 7 dvd into usb

Hi I just borrowed a Windows 7 on a dvd+r from my friend and want to install it.
I have all the requirements that I need to install it except I don't have a DVD-burner. Is there anyway i can copy the windows 7 into a USB without the DVD-burner?
I would really appreciate som help! And I need help fast!

PS, I don't want to download anything illegal or something that's not free!

I've read both of your guides but it does not answer my question. How can I move the windows 7 from the disc to the USB-memory when Iäm not able to load the DVD+r disc on my computer? My CD-driver can't read my DVD+r disc.
Solution??

That, you can't do. You may need to find a PC with a DVD Drive. Is this a desktop or laptop?

I have a desktop.
My father has a laptop with a DVD-drive/burner that I probably could use. But how do I copy the Windows 7 from the disc to a folder in the computer without installing it?

You can use his laptop. I'm wondering what sort of hardware you actually have. Because DVD-RWs have been a standard for a while. You may need to add more RAM for Windows 7. Also, if you live in America, you can pick up a DVD-Burner for relatively cheap (<$30).

I have a average computer I think. I have 1,5 GB RAM and that will probably be enough.
Maybe you're wondering why I don't have a DVD-Burner? Some ******* stole it...
I'm gonna buy a DVD-Burner soon but it's not that cheap, in Sweden a DVD-Burner costs like $50 and those are the cheapiest.


So I'm gonna look through the guides and hope it will work for me. But first I gotta loan a USB-memory..

You need a dvd drive to pop in your Win 7 dvd and at least 4GB usb pendrive.
Here's another tool to install Win 7 from usb. Originally posted by me about a week ago from another thread. Video tutorial included below and i do not own the video. Credits goes to the rightful owner.
