How to install Windows 7 via USB or Pen Drive?

Yesterday I found that I need to reinstall my OS.
I want to install windows 7, I downloaded the ISO image but now i need to burn it. When I burn it on DVD rom and trying to install its taking SO much time. SO I cancelled it.
Finally I choose to Burn this ISO image to USB Drive from this tool Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (
After Burning it to USB I connected it to my machine and Changed the BIOS boot options First to USB Device.

and its installed within 10mins... Its Great!!.. (Remember to Plugout the USB Drive after your computer restarted First time during installation)..

In WIndows 7, whenever we connect any USB Device on Some USB Ports we Got some warning messages?

I having windows 7 installed on My Laptop, Since last many months I having some issues whenever I connect any USB Device (Pen Drive, Mouse etc) I used to get some warning messages and sometimes it not works.
Yesterday I installed below mentioned hotfix and now I tested seems the issue resolved.
This Hotfix applies to a Windows 7-based computer. The computer has an Intel platform that is based on an Intel Atom Z670 processor and an Intel SM35 Express chipset. In this situation, you may experience functionality issues on full-speed and low-speed USB devices.

Let me know if it works for you also!!
