Unhappy Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7

Hi guys I have recently started working with ubuntu 11.10 and am right now working in lubuntu. I am a newbie and this is my first post, so here goes,
I recently got a new laptop Asus K53sv series it was preloaded with only DOS and not Windows 7. I am not working on it right now.

I am working on another laptop(from which I am posting, lets call it current laptop) on which I have lubuntu and have an iso file for Windows 7 professional. My query is simple I want to boot and install Windows 7 using a pen drive onto my new laptop. And I want to make this bootable usb drive using my current laptop.
And I dont have an optical drive on my current laptop

I have checked out the Startup Disk Creator but I dont know if it will help as it says in the description that it can be only used for Debian based OS.
please help! Thanks in advance

Furthermore if someone could explain to me the reverse migration (from linux to windows) that also will be very helpful.

Have a read of this link YOu can use a tool such as Magic ISO to mount the ISO as a virtual CD.

Use the software called WintoFlash to create the bootable pendrive and you will be ready to go.Google for it.
