Your question was already answred. And I find it hard to believe you have a computer shop based on the newb-ish questions you've been asking.

The 1st thing you should do is burn your ISO to a CD using ImgBurn, that way you'll have the files you'll need to create a bootable flash drive. Instructions are in response # 3 in this thread:

I remember your first post. Why don't you just buy a usb cd external drive to do the installs?

If it won't boot off a USB CD drive, how do you expect it to boot off a USB flash drive?

And why do you keep hammering us about this ISO file? You can't boot off an ISO unless you make it bootable using special software such as MagicISO. I don't know where you got the ISO from but you should just convert/burn it to a CD. It's uselss the way it is. Use ImgBurn like I've recommended several times now. Once you've created the CD, you can either use it as-is, or copy the files off it to create a bootable USB flash drive. Once again, I attached a link in your other thread that details what you need to do to prepare the flash drive.

"UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on both Windows and Linux."

What good is that for Windows ISO ??? JEEZ!!
