And yes there is a way to install windows 7 from usb(a bit complicated for some but...) here's the link:Install Windows 7 From USB Drive/Pen Drive

Oh and i almost forgot:Welcome to Windows 7 forums!
I haven't tried yet but thanks for the suggestions It will be the first thing I do after school today

The USB-way didn't work for me, in the command prompt, when I did the "bootsect"-command, it just said that my version of windows wasn't compatible with the bootsect.exe or something.

Haha thanks, hopefully I don't have to spend too much time at the windows 7 problem solving forum :P

No, I tested with the old on, and I fixed so the CD/DVD drive was the first booting alternative, but it still didn't happen anything...
It just says: "Selected boot device not avalible - strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility"...

I have an empty DVD that I'm planning to burn a Windows 7 Build 7600 64-bit on, do you think that one will work better than a "Windows 7 64-bit Multi-language UP2DATE"?

Didn't get that last bit...
You need to burn an official MSDN Windows 7 iso image...then adjust your bios first boot device DVD, second your primary hdd...
And remember BURN SLOWLY! (better a few minutes more burning than fixing issues for days!)
And check your BIOS setting for some additional boot options but dot touch them! Write them in a post so i can see them...

"windows 7 64bit multi-language UP2date is not an OS. It is used to UPDATE. You need the win 7 64 bit ISO from microsoft.

The one I downloaded and have tested with so far is a Windows 7 64-bit multi-language UP2DATE. That was the one that I didn't manage to boot from.

My question was if the one I've just downloaded, called "7600.16385.090713-1255_x64fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULXFRER_EN_DVD", will work to boot from?

Are you sure it's not a whole OS? The file is 6GB big... It has to be a very big update in that case :P

You cant be getting these files from microsoft. win 7 32 bit is abt 2.5 gig, win 7 64 bit is abt 3. gig.

The name on the second file is correct but if you are not getting it from microsoft you are dealing with an unknown file system
