Create And Install Win7 From USB Drive

Hello, I just purchased a HTPC that has no DVD drive and came installed with Ubuntu OS and I want to install Windows 7 as the OS. I purchased Windows 7 but its DVD's so I need to somehow make a ISO from the DVD and then make a bootable USB Drive. Anyone have any experience doing this? Thanks!

You can create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.
  1. Download and run Universal USB Installer Easy as 1 2 3
  2. Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom
  3. Select the Windows 7 iso file
  4. Select your USB flash drive
  5. Click Create

In 10-15 minutes you have a flash drive you can use to install Windows 7 from.

And just use your new Windows 7 dvd to make the iso from.

What's with the 100 Mb partition that Win7 likes to create on installation? I've had this before, with XP, where the OS installs the boot partition on a drive other than the one on which I am installing Windows. The way I see it, the user should have absolute control over where Windows is putting...
