Plug in the bootable USB stick.
Power on your UL30A and press ESC to select boot device. Choose the USB stick, and the installation will initialize.
MS has a utility which simplifies the process of making a bootable USB stick: http://store.microsoft.com/Help/ISO-Tool.
If you are installing x64 you need to make the bootable USB device manually, because the MS utility is unable to use the bootloader from a 64 bit Windows 7 disc/ISO. Follow these instructions instead.
If you encounter a strange message telling you to supply a driver that the installation can’t find, you need to go to asus.com and download the ATKACPI driver for the harddrive controller or enter BIOS and change the IDE-controller mode to AHCI. See this post for a discussion on the issue.
