Windows 7: Win 7 Boot USB first detected, but not anymore?

Win 7 Boot USB first detected, but not anymore?

I've just finished assembling my first computer, and tried installing windows 7 ultimate x64 on a blank samsung 256gb SSD from an 8gb usb stick, but I got an error on the second step at 1% saying "Windows cannot install required files". I pressed OK and restarted, I get a message saying there's nothing to boot from. Obviously, I made sure the USB was top priority as a boot device.

Any help with that..?

Here's some information about the stuff:

-The components are here:Intel Core i5-4690K, MSI GeForce GTX 970, Fractal Design Define R5 (Black) - System Build - PCPartPicker Canada
-I used Rufus to get windows 7 ultimate on the usb as a bootable device. I kept everything by default once that was done, so MBR for bios/uefi,NTFS ( I think), 4096 and quick formatting, no bad block verification.
-The HDD was unplugged
-I used a usb 2.0 port

The error itself happened on the installation screen, after the screen forselecting to choose partitions and whatnot, as the files were being copied.

This was my first build, so maybe this could be hardware-related somehow. Thank you!

Put your iso file on the usb stick again using this program, it never fails me.

And make sure you didn`t change the boot order in the bios, or else the usb stick will just keep booting over and over again.

Use the boot menu to choose the usb stick 1 time and that`s it.

Hope that USB stick isnt USB3, There are no drivers for that version on W7.

PurpleMagus, where did the 7 Ultimate iso file come from that you put on the usb stick ???

Did you download it ?

It most likely corrupted.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
You can double check the process with this if you haven't already seen it,
Rufus works good for me every time :/

Must be the iso you used ultimate is the biggest pirated version.
