How do I boot Partition Wizard bootable cd from my USB?

Long story short: I was messing with my partitions and now my main OS partition is dynamic. I need to boot the bootable partition wizard.iso file from my usb to fix this problem. How do I go upon doing that? I could always burn it but I don't have any DVDs/CDs on me.

Where can I download the .iso file for it though? When I download it it just gives me a file not a rare file and I cannot mount it with the installer because it cannot find the .iso file. Where would you download the .iso file from?

You need an iso program on your pc to be able to see and read an iso image.

Imgburn is a free program.

Windows 7 natively recognises ISO files and the Windows native image burner can also burn it to a disc.

The ISO files can however be associated with other programs too.

I may be on the wrong track and am curious but why does it have to be a bootable Partition Wizard??

Why not run the PW from the machine or is it totally wrecked or what??

Looks like Partition Wizard has hosed up their downloads. With version 7.6, when you selected Boot CD on the left of their home page, you ended up getting an ISO file. When you select that entry now (with v7.8) you get an .exe file -- which INSTALLS PW on your PC. To create a bootable USB, it looks now like you have to INSTALL PW on your PC and then use a menu option to create a CD/DVD/USB.

When you download Bootable CD from this download page, you get the 42.7MB pwhe78.iso
