or you could use UltraISO and follow these steps:

How to install Windows 7 from USB drive (step by step guide):

Step #1: Creating bootable USB drive
1. Sart UltraISO (V9.3 or newer version, download here)
2. Choose ‘File’->’Open’ from main menu and open ISO file of Windows 7, for example “d:\ISO\WIN7_DVD.iso”; You may also open the original DVD by 'File'->'Open CD/DVD' from main menu if you have not an bootable ISO
3. Choose ‘Bootable’->’Write disk image’ from main menu
4.Insert the USB drive you intend to boot from
5. Choose proper “Write Method”,USB-HDD+ is recommanded
6. Hit “Write” to get a bootable USB drive

If no errors occured in the above process, you should now be all set to boot from USB and install Windows 7!

Try this PowerISO at the first, Make an ISO file from the CD and make from it the bootable USB using the same app, if it failed try WinUSB Maker If not working too feedback us =)

I'm not making a Bootable Windows Installation USB drive.

Does the PowerISO able to make an Acronis Image Bootable CD to a Bootable USB ?

Thanks...

Download the ISO file.Use YUMI to make a bootable USB Flash Drive.

1.Select your USB Flash Drive.

2.Select Format Drive

3.Go to Bootable ISOs(available at the bottom in select distributions section) & select Try an unlisted ISO

4.Browse to your ISO file(i.e,Acronis ISO)

5.Select Create.

You can add other ISO files if you wish so.YUMI will ask for it the end.

Optional

You can also edit the title of the bootable ISO entry by going to G:\multiboot\menu\menu.lst and edit the title of the particular entry using notepad.(Select Save as type as All Files and give File name as menu.lst)Here 'G' is your USB Flash Drive.

These entries would be present in menu.lst file in the path as mentioned previously.

Thanks for your helpful information given.

But I'm not trying to install windows, I want to boot my netbook with a Acronis Image Bootable USB to backup my system while there is no CD/DVD drive in my netbook.

I managed to make a bootable Acronis Image 2013 iso to a Bootable USB using UltralISO, but it fail to boot up my netbook.

The PowerISO make my flash drive into a RAW format drive that unable to use in Windows after making the

Acronis 2013.iso into the USB drive, while the WinUSB only meant to make Win7/8 installation USB drive...

Acronis uses a very peculiar boot loader that programs like UltraISO/PowerISO won't see the boot loader, nor can they copy the boot loader to a USB stick. If you open the Acronis ISO use powerISO, you only see one folder: recovery manager, but the size is only about half of the ISO size - poweriso can not see the bootloader.

So the only way you can do it is to actually install acronis TI program and activate it using a serial number/crack, then make a bootable USB from within the program. There is no way to make the acronis boot cd directly to a boot USB.

Did you chose the USB-HDD option just like the pic below?

For multiboot USB drives,take a look here.You can simply drop just about any ISO file on to USB and get it to boot.
