How to create a bootable USB Windows OS using Mac OS X
I am attempting to install Windows 7 on a system I've newly built, and I'm having a hell of a time of it. I need to create a USB stick which will install Windows 7. Apparently this would have been a lot easier to do from Windows, but at this point, I no longer have a working Windows install. I have only a Macbook Pro running OS X available (note: I am not trying to install Windows on the MBP.)
I've found reports that I claim I just need to
dd the files over, but this does not work.
I also tried using Boot Camp Assistant (after hacking the Info.plist) to create install media.
In both of these cases, what has happened is that the bios (or the UEFI?) has recognized the disk, but all I get is a black screen and a flashing cursor (the underscore kind, not a mouse cursor.)
As I briefly noted, this system has a UEFI bios. I'm not really familiar with this, so I thought it might matter.
