I didn't have any success getting a USB boot from the Linx 7,
despite the BIOS seeing the USB stick and I could set boot priority to it...
Anyway posting here just to say there is an easy method using linux "installer for windows"

You download and run this under windows, and it installs a dual boot linux for you.
(doesn't repartition, but uses a folder on your C: drive)
Worked well on my linx 7, just needed USB hub with keyboard & wifi dongle for initial install
