I never have made a boot from a flash drive, and I have never worked with apple software so I am walking into an abyss here lol. I have a ISO of snow Leopard and want to install it on my buddys pc ( I have a different hard drive for it so no need to worry about partition issues). So how do I make this work out? If its too complicated I am gonna go to the store and get myself a nifty DL DVD!! Thanks in advance guys

i use imagewriter to create bootable usb drives:- http://en.opensuse.o...:Live_USB_stick

Quote

Windows Instructions
Download ImageWriter

Download the SUSE Studio ImageWriter
Write ISO to USB

Write the LiveCD to the USB stick.

NOTE: Windows Imagewriter.exe, unlike Linux version, does not see automatically .iso files, only .raw, but it works with any of those files without problems. That leads to manual selection described below.

Open the downloaded ImageWriter
If the ImageWriter won't open, you'll probably need to download the .NET 2.0 Runtime
If you get an error right after you start the process, you may want to right-click the executable and "Run as administrator".
Press the select button
Type *.* in the file name box and find your LiveCD image
Select your USB stick and click the Write button
