I am currently on a computer only running 10.8.2 on a SSD, with all my data on a HDD RAID configured under Mountain Lion.
Since I also need to use windows applications, I bought another identical SSD just for it but now, under Os X, I have no idea how to make a bootable windows 8 installation usb disk.

I tried unetbootin to restore the .iso on a 8 Gb compact flash, but when I then try to boot from it, I receive a "Missing Operating System" error.

I tried to convert the .iso to a .dmg with the DMGConverter app, then to restore it with Disk Utility, and again it didn't work.

Can anybody give me a suggestion?

Thanks for reading!

You can burn iso's in disk utility. Just burn it to disk

No, I couldn't, I get the 254 error because of Disk Utility incompatibility with ISO9660.

Anyway, I solved the problem relying on a Windows laptop I have.
