Windows 7: Can't Boot from a 2GB USB flash drive

Try using another utility to write the ISO to flash. Win2Flash has worked to write the Repair CD to flash stick. YouTube - How to install Windows 7 from USB (WinToFlash)

Thanks I could give it a go but the problem is not getting the correct material onto the USB (eg. standard way for system repair USBs or the Hirens iso).
The exact procedure works on 4GB USBs and not 2GB USBs when the source material is way under 1GB.
