Why do I receive a “No MBR Magic” error when trying to install Windows 7 via USB?

I am installing (well trying to) windows 7 on a new computer with no software. I have gone through all the steps found here:
http://www.makeuseof.com/answers/install-windows-7-iso-file/

I have set the BIOS to USB first and it seems to run okay but then the following text comes up:

No MBR magic.
Warning: treating disk as raw.
Booting…

It doesn’t do anything else. Can someone please tell me if i am doing something wrong or if it just takes quite a while to install.
Thanks.
