Boot window 7 from USB on brand new custom computer?

Booting window 7 from USB on brand new custom computer? Since I didnt buy cd/dvd burner.

First of all I'm building a computer.
I bought all the essential parts I need but I did NOT buy a CD/DVD Burner.

So it kinda hit me how am I suppose to install window 7.

So i decided that, since I already have window 7.iso formatted on my usb which should be bootable. I was thinking that I wont need that cd/dvd burner and I can just install window 7 from my usb.

will that work even when it has no operating system?

And i plan on installing all the other drivers via the website. after i install window 7.
