I would like to create a live cd without any outside software. I want to “burn” an iso to a USB stick and create a live USB somehow. I am using Windows – is this possible?

    you can make a usb istallation disk for windows 7 without extra software by following the instructions on this make use of article http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/usb-installation-disk-windows-7-extra-software/ You’ll need:

    A working Windows 7 system with a DVD drive and administrator rights.
    A Windows 7 installation DVD.
    4GB USB drive or larger.

    'without additional software' is somewhere no possible
    use Fedora or similar software to turn your thumbdrive into a bootable device. point to be noted: the drive will be formatted before creating the bootable usb drive, so; remember to backup your files

    Sorry Julien, it is pretty not possible at the moment to do so without using an additional application.

    Why not use a portable software for the same? As listed by Kannon, there are various reputed apps out there.

    So I would say, better use them right now!

    I hope this would help! :)

    Try using Flashnul or ImageWriter, while both are separate programs, they are standalone *.exe files and do not require installation.

    The first one, flashnul, evan operates via a command prompt window.

    You can use the portable version of LinuxLive, but it sounds as if you are using a locked computer (such as at a public library or the office).

    Using LiLi USB Creator may require that you download a very large file - oftentimes locked computers might place restrictions on large downloads.
