Can anybody help me make a bootable USB (WIN7), not for op sys installation but rather so I can boot from it and run some programs (e.g. BIOS update, Tests, Virus detection, etc.)

Thanks for the tip.  But it does not apply to my case.  The article shows how to make a virtual windows op sys.  I need one that will allow me direct manipulation of the hardware ( a la old DOS)  as I am trying to deal with the board BIOS.  I just need to be able to boot from a USB, get a command prompt so I can run some executable and batch files
