It is possible to make a bootable WIN7 into a USB flash disc.
Could I boot WIN7 from SD memory card?
i.e, when pressing F9 to change my BIOS to boot from USB, does it include also the SD memory slot?

I think what LH meant was that you can make a bootable USB stick but not a bootable SD card.

EDIT: Have a look here.

I hope this is well understood. The link that Matt posted allows you to move the installation .iso to a USB stick from where you then can install the system (I have done that as per the instructions of that same link and it works). This is handy if you want install on a Netbook that does not have an optical reader. What is does NOT do is to install the system on the USB from where you can subsequently run it - like you can e.g. with Fedora.

Maximum pc has an article in this year's November issue that explains the usb install with pictures also.
