Unable to boot from pen drive

I have a dell studio 1535. My cd rom doesnt work, hence i tried formatting my laptop through a pendrive. I downloaded windows 7 iso file, mounted it on my desktop using daemon tools lite, and then used wintoflash to load it on a
4GB pendrive. After that when i try to boot my laptop my using my pendrive all that i get is a cursor blinking on my screen.
Wintoflash formats my pendrive in FAT32 format could this be a problem?

    Try this;


    Did u make the ISO file USB bootable or did u change the boot order and select to boot from USB in the BIOS?

    USING THE WINDOWS 7 USB/DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL
    Before you run the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool, make sure you have already purchased the Windows 7 ISO download from Microsoft Store and have downloaded the Windows 7 ISO file to your hard drive. If you have purchased Windows 7 but have not yet downloaded the ISO file, you can download the file from your Microsoft Store Account.
    TO MAKE A COPY OF YOUR WINDOWS 7 ISO FILE:

    Click the Windows START button, and click WINDOWS 7 USB/DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL in the ALL PROGRAMS list to open the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.
    In the SOURCE FILE box, type the name and path of your Windows 7 ISO file, or click BROWSE and select the file from the OPEN dialog box. Click NEXT.
    Select USB DEVICE to create a copy on a USB flash drive or select DVD disk to create a copy on a DVD disk.
    If you are copying the file to a USB flash drive, select your USB device in the drop-down list and click BEGIN COPYING. If you are copying the file up to a DVD, click BEGIN BURNING.

    When your Windows 7 ISO file is copied onto your chosen media, install Windows 7 by moving to the root folder of your DVD or USB flash drive, and then double-click Setup.exe.
