The easiest method I've found and one which always works for me is to install UltraISO trial version. http://www.ezbsystems.com/ultraiso/download.htm

On the File tab, open ISO.

On the Bootable tab, Write Disk Image.

On the writing screen which opens, make sure the USB stick shows in the drop down menu window, and the ISO file is listed correctly beneath that.

Then click Format, then Write.

Now boot the stick on one-time BIOS boot menu finding the flash stick under USB or HD's.

On installer's first screen, press Shift + F10 to open a Command Line, type:
DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (confirm this is the HD where you want Win7)
CLEAN ALL (takes about an hour per 320gb)
EXIT

Close Command box, click Install Now, select Custom Install, use Drive Options to create partition(s) as desired, format before installing to first OS partition - ignore the 100mb boot partition it creates, it puts the Repair console conveniently on the F8 Advanced Boot Tools menu.

Here's another guide using the Windows USB/DVD Tool that might make it a bit easier for you:

I'm guessing you are using the Microsoft tool, so is your flash drive plugged in and recognized? Does it have a drive letter? There should be a refresh button.
