Hello all, I'm really hoping someone can help me out- I have completely screwed up my little toshiba netbook and am trying to install windows 7 with an iOS on a bootable usb- how can I create that with my surface? Seeing as it doesn't have any optical drive (that I'm aware of) and I cannot download any programs to burn the ISO to the usb... PLEASE HELP! My surface is the only access I have to any computer system...

Try YUMI - Multiboot USB Creator.  This is designed for working with a ISO image.

I will try it- the problem I've been running into is that the RT system won't support those programs. And I can't find an "app" that does any of it...

Bramsey88, you already have a thread on the same topic in the Windows 8 forum.  Which one do you want replies on?

Bramsey88 does indeed have the same topic posted in the Windows 8 forum.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/547084/create-a-windows-7-bootable-usb-on-my-surface-rt/

In that topic it is indicated that the Surface RT operating system in Win 8.

Because he/she wants to create the bootable usb on the Surface the proper place for this issue is Windows 8.

Please continue in that topic.

This one is closed.
