Create a bootable usb using Win AIK

hi. some help please,I need to create a bootable usb so I can run Diskguru within a O/S environment, change GPT partition style to MBR on a Dell laptop that has been formatted. I am trying to install Win 7 on this laptop. I have downloaded and unpacked WIN AIK on another win 7 laptop along with diskguru but I am stuck, what I need is a blow by blow set of instruction on how to proceed. many thanks.

Thanks fruit bat but it doesn’t help much as I said I need a blow by blow set of instruction to guide me through.

Thanks again fruit bat. Let me explain my problem, I have a dell inspiron laptop which did have win 8 installed that has been removed and the Hdd has been formatted. It was then given to me to re-install Win 7 from installation disc. When I tried it reported that it was GPT style partition and could not be installed, this means I have to convert the bios back to legacy, I cannot get into the bios to do this, pressing F2 takes me to settings but there is no option to change to legacy. what I need to do is change to MBR but for the want of trying I just cannot work out how. Some advice/solution if possible.

Many thanks everyone, I managed to get this all sorted out by using a getparted disc to delete existing partitions, which then enabled a new installation.
