I build a new gaming computer a couple days ago, everything was working fine up until the part where I install an operating system. I went into my bios told the computer to boot from usb (which contains windows 7) and have tried everything to get my computer to "detect" an OS on the flash drive.

I'm at a loss, I have no idea what to do. I'm not sure if this
means anything, but the files in the flash drive are .exe not .iso. I'll post the relevant specs ahead of time so nobody asks for them.

Motherboard = Asus Maximus V Formula ROG
CPU = Intel Core i5 3570k
CPU Cooler = H60 High Performance Liquid Cooling System
GPU = Superclocked EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3GB
OS = Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
RAM = 16 Gigs sniper series ram

HELP!!!

You need the Windows 7 setup files on a flash drive and then boot from that flash drive to get the Windows 7 installation process started. Just copying the files from your Windows 7 DVD to a flash drive won't work.
