Install Windows 7 from USB flash drive

with linux distributions is possible. Can this be done with windows too?

Basically I just want to move the files from my installation DVD to a stick, and make it bootable like the dvd

The official way is to use the Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool.

If you choose to download an ISO file (so that you can create a bootable file from a DVD or USB flash drive), copy your Windows 7 ISO file onto your media and, run the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool. After you do this, you can install Windows 7 onto your computer directly from the USB flash drive or DVD.

Presumably it will still work if you create an iso file from a physical DVD rather than downloading it from Microsoft.
