Hello,

I am trying to install windows 7 onto my meego tablet and need to create a bootable USB, as it doesn't have a cd drive. I have the Windows 7 installation file (which ends .iso) and have tried to install by following the steps outlined in articles I have found online (e.g. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-create-an-ubuntu-in...)

However, the steps they outline refer to .img files - can anyone help me to do this? Any help or advice is much appreciated.

All the best

.iso files are for burning CDs. I think you have to extract the files from the .iso and then copy them to the USB drive. 7-zip should be able to do that for you, if there is Mac support (I didn't look). Then you have to make the USB drive "Active", which I don't know how to do on a MAC. Also, can you make the USB drive a FAT32 partition with a MAC? There is no script to run, simply copy/paste the contents of the Windows 7 installation files to the USB drive.

This may be a lot easier with a PC.
