Burn the iso to a dvd, put it in the superdrive, and run the bootcamp assistant. You don't need to install windows to a separate usb drive.

You don't need to install windows to a separate usb drive.
More importantly, you can't. There is no reliable way to get Windows 7 to work on a USB drive, unlike XP.
