Usb is first device in bios boot.

Can you change this setting?

Use internal hard disk as first boot device.
Press a hot key to boot from USB, e.g. F9, F11, F12.

Use grub4dos (or other similar bootmanager) to boot only once (the first) from USB and then boot only from HD.
Add to the Windows 7 install something auto-running when install is completed that re-sets the menu.lst to boot the USB stick next time.
Or set "fixed" to boot form hard disk with a 10 seconds time out and make sure to be there during first boot to select the USB stick (the thingy can be unattended as mych as you wish, but someone must be there to insert the USB thingy and switch the PC on).

I do not quite understand where I need to install grub4dos, because the windows are in the process of installing
can I install it on a flash drive? I would be very grateful for a more detailed
