Windows 7: How to create a 2 Part USB boot?

How to create a 2 Part USB boot?


Firstly, English is not my mother tongue so bare with me.

I want to install a Windows 8 (as a example) on my computer. Instead of a DVD, I want to use a USB. The ISO size of Windows 8 is 3.75 GB and the USB I have is 4.00 GB (3.71 GB free). So, I want to make half of the ISO on 1 USB and the other half on the other USB.

Here is what I am trying to say.

You know when you install a big game with multiple DVD's, it requires to change DVD's. When installing it asks you to insert DVD 2. I want to make that kind of feature but on the USB.

I hope you understood what I am trying to say.
