I have done this process before, i have the ISO file and i used a program to insert it into a USB and it is possible it is an option for Windows

I just solved this problem after 3 hours,
I had to somehow trick the mobo that the USB was a cd via BioS

I don't think he meant boot Windows from the USB, but INSTALL Windows from it.
