  1. You could use the windows USB DVD tool to make a bootable USB stick and install windows of that
  2. You don't need to delete anything, when you install 7 everything gets deleted. Just put in the usb which is the easiest way you can install w7. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/31541-windows-7-usb-dvd-download-tool.html

    well even windows 8 fits on an 8gb stick with something like 2-4gb~ left over
  7. W8 install is similar size 3.4gb. I also use my 4gb for that.
