How can I repair windows 7 using a USB drive?

I cannot load up windows 7 fully, but I've downloaded the Iso. I'm wondering if there's a way to use it to repair my win 7. It was tested on a different computer and it works fine. Whenever I boot up windows 7 it freezes. I have it set to IDE and if i change it from that it freezes to. Right now I'm installing windows 7 on a new drive to see if this helps. Any advice will be appreciated. I can show you my screen over skype. Every since my 6 core died on me I've always been having these problems. Also is there a way to " boot " windows 7 off my usb with having to install it? So I can get past the glitch? It also crashed while trying to install windows 7. What do I do? It crashes in safe mode to. But once again this was tested at my friends house and everything worked fine. I have tried different cpu's and gpu's all the same problem.
