Sure it is possible. :)

I wonder what you were searching for. :unsure:

There is NOT a "one-size-fits-all" solution.

You need to specify WHICH Operating Systems are you wishing to boot from the USB device, and anyway find your own way, take your decisions, do your own experiments.

A very versatile bootmanager is grub4dos, and another one is syslinux.

If you want to boot the SETUP (or install routine) of windows from USB, check here:

Without additional information I cannot give you any "specific" link/advice.

Sure.

.iso mapping won't work for NT based OS unless a Ramdisk driver of some kind is used.

For the XP .iso read here:

No support for Hiren's as it is WAREZ. :ph34r:

This is an interesting question that I'm considering to add into my multi-boot guide, as CDs and DVDs become more and more obsolete. Come to think of it, I don't use a CD or DVD in months as my pen is with me at all times :) That's it, count with USB support for the next update on the multi-boot guide ;)

Anyway, take a look at this little something something: Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool.

Hope you like it ;)
