The USB have lot of data, (it is 1TB), so I want to make it bootable without format it..

You can not since you have to make the USB partition active and install the appropriate boot mechanism.
Presumably your system can be booted via USB.

why not buy an USB flash stick to put it one?  should not cost much (depending on the ISO size)
or put it on a cd, or DVD
a R/W can be reused, if you like

Use an ISO buster or plugin, then create the boot CD/DVD.
Flash drive can also work (you have to extract the build, not just copy the ISO on)...had to do that for netbooks and reasonably fast too.
