Windows 7: ISO to USB flash drive, what software

ISO to USB flash drive, what software

I know I have done this before but for some reason I can NOT figure out how I did it.

I want to burn a bootable ISO file to a USB flash drive and have it boot.

I have searched the web for a program that can do that but have come up short.

I have tried Ultra ISO but can't for the life of me figure out how to do it.

Is there a program that easily will burn a ISO file to a USB flash stick.

I'm not trying to do it for windows, already have that done.
I have been successful in using 7ZIP to extract ISOs to flash sticks and some boot but others don't. These are bootable ISO files. Like for Easeus Partition Master. If I burn the Win PE ISO to CD it boots but if I extract the ISO to flash stick using 7ZIP it doesn't boot.

You have the one formerly mentioned in one of the guides here for writing iso images to make up usb installation keys. Once you browse to the location where you have the iso and click on it to open it you simply go to the menu bar in UltraISO and select the bootable option to write the iso to a flash drive.

The two images attached here show how easy that is. Note the option seen for formatting greyed out in the second screen. You can format a flash drive to NTFS as well as Fat 32 while Fat 16 is default.

UltraISO will work for other OSs as well as for install keys. I use here often for wrting ubuntu and other distros for a live sticks or even to make up live data recovery sticks. Just the shareware version will see all that done.

Thanks I already have that tool. But that is only for making a bootable Win 7 install USB stick.
I was looking for a program to take any ISO and burn it to a USB flash stick

Why don't you try this? It is super simple. And you can pack your pendrive with as many bootable ISOs as you would like and boot from any. It will take just five minutes to download it and make your bootable pendrive. You can also have the Acronis Rescue CD ( latest addition in its list)

Also have a look here for more details.
