Re downlod the Ultimate iso and use wintobootic to burn the iso to the usb stick

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life

WiNToBootic bootable usb drive windows vista/7/8 - Bootable USB | Bootable USB

Let it finish.

Use the 1 time boot menu key to boot from the usb stick only once.

Anymore problems, post back.

A properly prepaired W7 usb stick will look like this.
