Somebody is bound to pop up now and tell me it isn't impossible - so maybe they will answer your question.
Yeah viking777, i think you remember me.. perhaps
yes, it is possible to do so.
many did it and post somewhere in several forums
for me I do not like to deal with very lenghty procedure.
so i just follow unetbootin's procedure of hard disk frugal install, once that is working, the iso will be bootable via your boot loader controlling MBR , as far as unetbootin procedure in their link, it said 'windows, grub legacy, grub2'.
for me, since i usually use grub legacy to control MBR, i try their procedure and it works.
in fact, just to be sure before i post this, I use the same procedure in unetbootin website and just completed two installation from iso...
i think i might just try also with grub2 controlling MBR to see if it works on my system.
then follow by using win7 control MBR to see if I can make it work..
when it works, it save us a few steps for preparing USB flash , which is good!
i create new post here on similar topicviewtopic.php?f=46&t=122187
my experiments are all in msdos/MBR format, not uefi, not GPT, not RAID, not dynamic volumn...
but some possible issue with the OP: Win8, uefi/GPT / partition etc..
