Make sure the BIOS has the USB device(s) first in the boot order. Different for each system, you'll have to look around in the BIOS. To get into the BIOS, check the initial boot screen for which key to hit.

Hi Friend,Thanks for your effort,I formatted the USB with NTFS system So it will work as harddisk and copied Windows 7 Os,Then I selected USB from the Boot Menu,It automatically erased the GRUB loader and installed the windows 7,Now Everything is Ok.
