Or...
1. Download 7zip or alike and extract the contents of your Windows 7 ISO to your hard drive.
2. Run setup.exe.

ADD: Not a perfect clean installation, you'll have a Windows.old folder, but beats all that hassle :wink:

The method that ceery outlines here (if it works) would work, he says to use a CD and a Installation disk - Install.wim is pretty small.

If his method doesn't work, you could always vLite yourself a CD sized disk if you're really desperate...
