Everything you need is here to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

The latest official Installer ISO and tool to write it to stick is in Steps 1 and 2.

Does this answer your question which is a bit vague?

It would be easier to just download a new ISO of the latest official installer for your licensed version from Step 1 and then write to flash stick with the tool in Step 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

This time follow the steps closely to get a perfect install so that once its set up and running best you can save a Win7 backup image so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD in 20 minutes.

Gregrocker I know that ,,, but what I want is that , I have a copy ( installation files ) of windows 7 very stable and quite strong in my HDD , and I used to format ( re-install ) - so to speak - the windows using USB flash because of the speed . I have many copies of windows 7 but I will never give up till I make my desire to make this copy ISO .
thank you .

The way to preserve an install you like and want to keep permanently is to save externally a Win7 backup or other image of the install as shown here: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup.

That way if your install becomes irreparable you can reimage it to the HD or replacement HD in 20 minutes or less, as shown here: System Image Recovery

There are other freeware solutions for imaging which offer more choices like or the excellent Acronis premium imaging/cloning suite which comes free with any WD or Seagate HD in the mix. The manual is on the downloads page and easy to understand: DiscWizard | Seagate
