I want to make bootable usb drive for Windows 7 on Hackintosh OS X (Yosemite). Boot Camp seems not working. I tried sudo if=path/to/my/win7.iso  command and nothing happens - it just boot as usually. :(

 

 

Any suggestions will be appreciated :)

"sudo if=..." Isn't the command you are looking for.
You are looking for
sudo dd if=/path/to/win7.iso of=/dev/disk[i]n[/i]
use lsblk or disk utility to find out the value of n for your flash drive.

!!!!!WARNING!!!!!! ~~ DD has acquired the nickname "Disk Destroyer". You should be very careful to ensure that you select the correct device in the of= section of the command.

Warning #2: Windows will overwrite the MBR. You should not install Windows to the same disk as your bootloader and/or OSX install.

Along with the dd command you can use a Windows 7 iso with Unetbootin for Mac OSx

@JhonC's method is considerably safer than the method I suggested. I recommend it over mine.
