Default Installing Win7 from usb

I'm trying to make a bootable usb with Win7 on my laptop, as my PC's dvd drive is messed up and wont install. (It does read movies and stuff)

Now, i went for the CMD method, but i can't copy the bootcode, as the Win7 disk is x64, and my Vista laptop x86. Is there some way i can get it working? I can't use the official windows tool for it, since the file is DLM and not ISO, and converting isn't an option, unless there is a free program to convert it.
(Or extract and re-iso it to the right format, like Poweriso, but it's not free and does not create stuff bigger than 300mb)

Thanks.

It got it working, but i got some error that said "requires CD/DVD driver". I retried with my crap dvd drive disconnected, and it still asked the same thing.

Lulz0rz, it seems that i mounted the old RC to the USB, not my actual Win7 disk.
