2) Select bootable and choose write disk image.
3) Make sure in write method, usb-hdd+ drive is picked. {it is by default though}
4) Select write and sit back and let it get done.

Reboot the pc and choose the usb drive to boot with and enjoy.

By the way... if the .ISO is on my thumbdrive (NTFS) - can I boot up the thumbdrive to have priority to install windows?
No, since you would need to mount the ISO. You need to extract it onto the ISO, then boot into it.

exFAT, being a modernized version of FAT/FAT32, does support large files. exFAT is better for flash media than NTFS; the only downside is that it's still somewhat new and is only supported on Windows Vista SP1 and newer or Linux with a beta driver.

also remember, that if you are using a mac, there will be files left over that can take up space that windows can't see. So always check the free space by right clicking the drive and hitting properties.

also what everybody else said, your drive needs to be NTFS, I forgot that most drives come as fat32.

Step 6 asks me to insert windows DVD, I have it on my computer though (not as a DVD). Any ideas?

Good luck! I was able to get Windows 7 installed from a bare SSD to on the desktop in about 10 minutes using a microSD card in a SDcard adapter plugged into USB 2.0 port.

yes, extract iso to folder anywhere on computer and copy to usb device from there...

that is what I do instead of digging out my install disk

click download

open it, show it where the iso is, show it where the pendrive is, and then tell it you want to make a 7 installer. JOB DONE
never had a problem and ive done hundreds of installs like this, change bios to boot from usb.

I am unsure if this works for what you want but I used this method to install the standard windows 7 iso onto my usb to install.
