http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hey guys, I'm having problems making a live usb with windows 7 to install next to my f17. I have an ISO that i used to make a virtual machine a while back. My computer can definitely boot from usb, that's how i install my fedora. I've tried a bunch of forums, but finally getting thoughtful about my approach, I've worked with two drives (b and c) as follows: 1) made the partition with mkfs, one as nfts and the second as fat32: b) mkfs.nfts /dev/sdb1 c) mkfs.vfat /dev/sdc1 2) wrote my w7.iso to both with dd: dd if=/directory/w7.iso of=/dev/sdx1 3) added windows 7 MBR to fl (HowTos)
