Saved the Windows 7 install.exe on a memory stick

Explain more about that please.

Windows 7 is installed from the official Windows 7 installation DVD. It can only be installed on one computer and if you want to install Windows 7 on another computer you have to purchase another licensed Windows 7 DVD.

Where is this failing for you?

Or perhaps you left out some details?

Re Windows 7 install.exe

The exe version was supplied through such as Digital River online store.
It can't be used to install on a blank drive, it needs to be run to extract the setup files ready for burning an instalation dvd.
