You would want to extract the contents to the USB drive (isobuster would be ideal for this).

Of course your bios would have to be capable of booting from the USB.

I've got no problem in extracting the content of a CD or an ISO file. Copying them to a flash drive wouldn't be a problem either. The whole problem is copying the boot data. Of course if you are planning to copy a "copy protected CD" to your flash memory, that would also be a big challenge.

Copying "boot data" is not the issue. The issue is whether or not the system supports booting from a USB device. Most do not. It doesn't matter if "boot data" is on the flash drive or not. The system simply will not see the drive as a bootable device.

Since an ISO is setup to boot specifically from a CD/DVD, you'll probably have to rebuild it to make it into a bootable USB disk. The boot block isn't the same for the two devices.
