    Do you have ANY idea what you are even talking about? ISOs are images of discs, like CDs and DVDs, just the raw data.

    What you are speaking of is "emulating" the iphone's OS in Windows, which is not yet possible.

    actually as a matter of fact i DO know what i am taliking about

    an iso is also what emulators use to emulate an OS, and seeing as my goal is to emulate the os, make the firmware (witch HOLDS the OS) runnable, making an iso of it would be the best way......

    PS:i use multiple .iso's to emulate 3 different OS's

    An "ISO" is an image file format (based on the ISO standard, ISO 9660 for example) and has absolutely nothing to do with emulators other than the fact that some of them use the format to store images of games, etc. An ISO image is nothing more than a clone of the file system and data.

    You don't create an ISO of the touch firmware, that's not how it works. You would have to write a rather extensive application to accomplish what you want (that's after you figure out how to capture the BIOS, and whatever else you need to create the emulator).

    granted it si the result of a cd, but it is also commonly used when downloading an OS (if you download LINUX, it will be in .iso) then, emulated OR burned to cd and installed on a hard drive.

    That's because an iso file is just an image of a disc or file system. As explained above.

    I'm not sure what your point is?
    You're still confused. You're failing to understand the basic logic of how an emulator works. What you want to do isn't going to happen anyways, unless a dev has some strange burning desire to do this.
