Instructions for a flash drive at Microsoft, although they are for netbooks which don't have dvd drives, the principle is the same. Why the need for a flash instalation, surely you will be fitting a dvd drive, it's not like they are expensive?

Yeah i'll have a disk drive, its just my friend is giving me a copy of his windows 7 and its an ISO file so I wasnt sure about how about setting it up this way since there would be no way to use like daemon tools or something.

If that is a family license he has, you can't legally use it as per his license agreement which in part states:
“If you are a ‘Qualified Family Pack User’, you may install one copy of the software marked as ‘Family Pack’ on three computers in your household for use by people who reside there.”

Not to be pedantic, but I think that's not exactly legal.
