    It is impossible to do that directly from Windows. You must run Mac OS X. It is not legal to run Mac OS X on any other computer than Macintosh. But, you can install Mac OS X on Hacintosh or on virtual machine (VMware, VirtualBox). Then you can make bootable USB. And the easiest way is to use program Lion DiskMaker, http://liondiskmaker.com/.
    But once again, you must have fully working version of Mac OS X and of course Mountain Lion DMG file bought in AppStore.
    You can check also instructions on this page: http://www.sysprobs.com/category/vmware
    But the best solution is: If you want Mac OS X buy Mac.

    I think the first question you should ask is: will it even work? It takes a lot of tweaking and you will have to do research on your hardware for the DSDT file you'll need. I would advise against trying to hackintosh your laptop and if you really want to experience OS X for a cheaper price, building a custom desktop would be the best option. Check out http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page if you do embark on that route.

    DalSan M gave the correct suggestion. However, if you do not have a legal OS X copy, then probably you need to go the Hackintosh way. Checkout the iATKos project. However, we here do not support software piracy, so you can check it out at your own responsibility.

    This might be of help: http://www.makeuseof.com/answers/create-bootable-mac-usb-windows-xp/ It doesn't matter the version of Windows, it matters if you already have a working installation of Mac OSX before creating a bootable USB. DVD installation is easier and has less requirements before installation than USB.
