I only have linux machines in my home right now and was wondering if it is possible to create a bootable Windows 7 USB flash drive from within linux using only a .ISO file.
Is there some utility that can do that, or am I stuck without WoW until I can get to a windows machine and use that to make the disk? (^.o)

tar xvf ms-sys-2.1.5.tar.gz
make install #as root
Write a Windows 7 MBR to your USB drive (as root)
ms-sys -7 /dev/sdX
Replace 'X' with your USB drive letter
You now have a bootable USB Windows 7 installer
I also found this to be helpful, but I could not get it working at first. The comment "mark as active." was misleading. Instead, I just set the boot flag in gparted after formatting to ntfs. Copied the files over, installed the boot loader and it boots now.
