Windows 7: Booting Windows 7 ISO off USB

Booting Windows 7 ISO off USB

I'm using YUMI attempting to create a Multi-ISO USB(Actually an SSD) Drive

working fine, Ubuntu 12.04 and Ultimate boot CD are working

but I was wondering

Is there a way to boot the Windows 7 ISO directly?
as in pointing the bootloader to the ISO file and booting it?

Hi,

YUMI has a Windows Vista/7/8 option that allows you to add the Windows installation ISO to it. Once you have done that, you will find it listed under Other Operating Systems or Tools when YUMI boots.

You mean actually boot Windows 7?

The answer is no, the ISO is an installation ISO, not an actual installation. The reason why the Linux distributions (like Ubuntu and UBCD) work is that YUMI uses syslinux to boot.
