Windows 7: BOOTMGR is Missing During Windows 7 Install

BOOTMGR is Missing During Windows 7 Install

I'm attempting to install a copy of Windows 7 on a Asus Eee 1000HE. I downloaded the ISO copy of Windows 7 Home Premium from the Microsoft website on another laptop which I own. I then used diskpart to clean and partition my 16gb usb drive to NTFS. I then transferred the Windows 7 ISO to the usb drive. I then changed the Eee pc's bios setting to boot first from the usb drive. However, after rebooting I recieve the error:
BOOTMGR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

I've searched online to find a solution to the problem but haven't found anything that will help me out. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
