Why not download window's usb download/installer tool instead? Very simple to use. Make sure the flash drive is 4GB or larger and you backup everything on it, it'll be erased. This is the preffered way i do these installs.

Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Downloads

Have fun. Oh, and make sure to boot off of the flash drive on the laptop.
