Is it possible to install Windows 7 on Mac from a USB stick, using Boot Camp? (it's so much faster than the usual CD/DVD install)

And the second question is: during the installation process (as described here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3986) I have to insert the SN install DVD. The problem is that I only have .dmg, so my question is: can I just use that instead of the DVD?

With the advent of Macs that have no optical drive, there's more information on this now:

Here are two guides on installing Win7 onto a USB.

As for your bootcamp problem I'm not to sure on that.

What you could do is try and install on a VM first. Then from there install Windows7 onto USB and then use that instead of a CD or .ding file.

Not exactly what I'm looking for. I need to install it from USB on a Mac, via Boot Camp. – Alex Aug 29 '10 at 16:48
