    I figured out how to do it (this is on Win7). I followed raftech instructions, but also had to do the following after:
    1) Run diskpart then type:
    2) select disk
    (where is the disk number as shown in disk management)
    3) detail disk
    (just to check you have selected the right disk)
    4) list volume
    (Have a look for the 13mb volume – on a removable disk)
    5) select volume
    (where volume number is the number as found in 4)
    6) active
    (this step makes the stick bootable)

    It should now boot. Be careful – you can do serious damage to your Windows install if you make a mistake…

    Maybe you need to enable the BOOT flag on the USB stick’s partition.

    Any idea how to do that?

    I am unable to get this to work. I followed the instructions a good few times – but when I try to boot off the drive my PC does not recognise the USB stick as a bootable device. I can get the same PC to boot off the same USB drive for other distributions.

    Any idea what may be going wrong?

    Thanks!
