    I'm trying to put a 4.5 gb iso on a 8gb usb drive and boot from it. Can anybody tell me how to do it. Whenever I try to drag and drop the file it says the destination drive is full! There are no files on it.

    What do you mean boot the ISO from usb, you don't normally BOOT an iso, if you want to boot it burn it to a cd/dvd would be the normal process.

    No luck. When it comes to copying the files it only copy's about 11 files totaling 200kb. When I mount the image and browse it I only see those files. I opened it with 7zip and opened the directory [boot] and saw a file "Bootable_NoEmulation.img" which I guess speaks for why I couldn't copy the files.

    Is there a way to boot from a network DVD drive?

    So I got the iso file open and I'm extracting all the files but I can't seem to extract the folder .HFS+ Private Directory Data.
    It shows up in Magic ISO but it has a little lock symbol next to it. How do I extract the file?

    Sorry about all the posts in a row but here's someting. I got IsoBuster and now I can access and copy all of the files in the iso image. Here's a screenshot of when I open the image.

    Sorry it's so big. Anyways, I tried extracting all the files from "iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5" onto my Flash drive and then booting it but I just got the message "Remove any disks or media and then press any key to continue" and then it boots into windows. Does anybody know how I boot the iso from my flash drive using this info/program?

    The drive has to support booting to it, it needs a boot sector area, and needs boot files modified.
