Default How to make a Windows ISO boot from USB - 10-29-2012, 11:25 PM

I've got a mini 10v that I've installed Mac OS 10.6 on one partition of the hard drive and I'm trying to install Windows 7 starter on the other partition to dual boot. I've got the windows installer as an ISO and I've tried putting it on an SD card and an external USB hard drive but I can't get the 10v to recognise it as bootable. I was able to make a bootable SD card to install Mac OS fine so I know it's possible to boot off an SD card. I've tested with a windows ISO that I've used before on a different system but it didn't work either. I get "operating system not found" error.

Anybody know what should be bootable and what shouldn't with this machine?

Try UNetbootin.

I used YUMI Multiboot USB Creator on sdcard and it worked great for me. But UNetbootin is what I see most people talking about using. Hope this helps.
