For me.. I happen to have Parallels Desktop (warning: this will cost you $) on my Mac and run a copy of Windows 7. So it’s from that environment that I can run a free portable app called “Rufus Portable” (provided by PortableApps.comwhich allowed me to create a bootable USB from an ISO image. There might be something in the App store for Mac that can do this but at the time I did not come across anything that could do the task other than doing the deed in Terminal.
