To create a bootable USB Pendrive you need the following things

Grab an .iso DiscImage of Windows 7. Should be bootable .iso Image (You will find this easily in the Internet).
You can create a bootable .iso from a bootable Windows 7 DVD using Alcohol 120%
Unzip the .iso Image using 7-zip or Any other Compression utilities like Winzip, WinRar.
