I believe you are referring to what used to be known as slipstreaming back in the days of Windows XP. Here is an article that works with USB to achieve the same for Windows 7

ming_and_usb.html

And if your already at Windows 7 Sp1 this other will assist for either ISO/DVD/USB installs.

There's a utility called rt7lite (the beta version), which allows you to integrate SP1 and other things into your installation DVD. It looks like the original site of that product is down, but it is still available at softpedia:

evilzekeshoes--If you are talking about upgrading existing installations of Win 7, there is no need to slip stream SP1.  Just download and install stand alone SP1

evilzekeshoes--
I must have missed it when you posted on Feb. 26

"what i want to do is when i do a clean install i want SP1 to be installed also"

The simplest way is to download the appropriate Win 7 SP1 (version the same as your existing installation) from here
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_install/i-do-not-have-windows-7-media-but-i-do-have-my/5ce13741-ac25-4969-ae82-2494726aac1c

burn as .iso to a DVD and use it for the clean install.  Your existing Product Key should work.
