Now that you have the system repair disk, it doesnt really matter but anyhoo...
Make a bootable flash drive. I use this method: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create
Dont dump the Windows 7 iso contents to the flash drive, instead copy all the files off the repair disk you created and paste them to the flash drive. Just paste them as they are, dont make any folders etc. Thats it. make sure the computer is set to boot from usb first.
Using the RE files on the hard disk is slightly more involved so we'll let it be.
