There are several ways to create a bootable USB Win 7 install disk. You can do it using diskpart utility but the sake of simplicity i recommends either WiNToBootic or WinToFlash. Download address are given below.






Both of them are easy to use and no need to explain in step by step. You just plug a USB drive (4GB or higher) , select source DVD and click Go.


WintoBootic faq and user guide - http://www.wintobootic.com/faq.html


Self explanatory video of WinToFlash




Both tool needs to copy the entire DVD to USB so it may take some time to finish.
