How to boot my laptop using pen-drive?
If you want to install windows 7 using a USB pen drive, do the following steps,
Connect a USB pen drive or a flash drive to a computer running windows 7,and check that the storage device has no data, if there are any data please transfer it in another place, because this procedure removes all data.
Open an elevated command prompt and write diskpart.
At the diskpart > prompt, type list disk. Identify which disk connected to the computer represents the USB storage device.
At the diskpart > prompt, type select disk X where X is the number of the disk that you have identified as the USB device.
At the diskpart > prompt, type clean, When the disk is clean, type create partition primary.
At the diskpart > prompt, type format fs = fat32 quick. When the format is completed type active and then exit.
After you have completed these steps, copy all the files located on the windows 7 installation dvd to the USB storage device.
Configure the BIOS computer on which you want to install windows 7 to boot from the USB storage device. Attach the USB storage device and then restart the computer to start installation.
I think you can now install windows 7.
