First you may want to create a bootable Windows 7 USB flash drive

see my EE Article, but use the Windows 7 ISO media!


But why do you want to boot from USB, an ISO is faster and quicker if you have it!

I would also recommend one of the other free Hypervisors, they are up to date, Virtual PC is old and outdated!

VMware Player 7.0 Free Download [FREE]

Oracle Virtualbox 4.0 [FREE]

You will need to install the OS, in the hypervisor.

Which hypervisor you use is up to you. But I would recommend Virtualbox or VMware Player.

do you have an ISO ?

(it's easier to install a VM from an ISO or CDROM)

because the USB stick, cannot be connected before the OS is powered up!
