To make a bootable USB from an ISO image:

    To have a bootable USB with Linux operating system
        Use Universal USB Installer from here.

     To have a bootable USB with Windows operating system
        I found an interesting guide here, which I have it below:

Having a bootable USB is very essential, especially if you are a Netbook user. Using bootable USB to install an operating system (OS) not only makes the installation faster, but also saves a DVD.

Creating or using an USB drive to install Windows operating systems is very easy if you follow the below mentioned steps.

If you are planning to use bootable USB to install Windows 7 or Vista please refer our guides:

Coming back to bootable USB guide, here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.

1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.

2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.

3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:

DISKPART and hit enter.

LIST DISK and hit enter.

Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive. In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.

4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.

SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)






(Format process may take few seconds)



Don’t close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.

5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use “D” as my optical (DVD) drive letter and “H” as my USB drive letter.

6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:

D: CD BOOT and hit enter. Where “D” is your DVD drive letter.

CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.


(Where “H” is your USB drive letter)

7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.

You are done with your bootable USB. You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).

Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.

Copy all contents of the CD to the USB now

To make USB Non-bootable

1 from here: http://www.ehow.com/how_6009008_boot-non_bootable-usb.html
Insert the Windows Vista installation DVD in the computer. Browse the contents of the disc, looking for the "Boot" folder. Copy the file "bootsect.exe" to the computer's C: drive.
Insert the USB flash drive.
Run the Command Prompt as the administrator. To do this, type "cmd" into's Windows' Search bar within the Start menu. Right-click "Command Prompt" and select "Run as Administrator." Enter the necessary password.
Type "diskpart" in the Command Prompt window and hit enter. Type "list volume" and hit Enter. This returns a list of the connected drives. The USB drive will be listed as "Removable" media. You are going to need the drive letter and volume number displayed, so make note.
Type "select volume #" (enter the actual number) and hit Enter. Type "activate" and hit Enter.
Type "exit" and hit Enter to quit the DiskPart program. Do not exit the Command Prompt yet.
Change directories to the C: drive by typing "cd C:\" and hit Enter. Type "bootsect.exe /nt60 A:" Enter the appropriate drive letter, noted in the earlier step and hit Enter. After the process completes, the non-bootable drive will now be able to boot the system.
