Windows USB stick boot image with disk tools

I need a bootable usb stick image for a netbook with a corrupt ntfs file system. I'm avoiding isos as Unetbootin has not been working for me. I need a raw image file as i can't rely on Windows to produce anything for me, having no Windows box to hand at the moment.

    format the usb stick as fat32 and make sure it is active
    list volume
    select volume (the # of your usb disk)
    now using winrar/7zip extract the contents of the .iso to the usb stick
    then boot from the usb stick
