    If you have an ISO.

    You can use the Universal USB Installer to unpack the ISO onto a USB stick.

    If you are only putting 32bit or 64bit,then a 4GB USB stick is enough and Microsoft's USB/DVD Tool can be used to unpack the ISO onto the USB stick.

    For combo 32/64 an 8GB USB stick will be required.

    You have to create an all editions windows 7 x86/x64 DVD/ISO (many tutorials around),then use Microsoft USB tool.

    I take it you only want the install files on the USB, not being able to run Windows 7 from the USB.

    To run windows 7 from a external drive you'll need a eSATA connection w/ similar drive, or at least that's how I did it in my lab.
