My name is Mike Bradshaw. Please contact me if I can be of assistance as one of the Moderators of Ask Different on Stack Exchange.

Note, If you are emailing for help answering your question as opposed to help with moderation of the site, be sure to send a link to the question. Help me help you by asking a stellar question.

I'm often in the chat rooms here, but I'm also very much on the twitter as @bmike.

comment Install Windows with Bootcamp from a file?
Thanks for the edit. It's much better now from my standpoint. :-) Are you using Bootcamp 5 and a Mac that supports Win 7? Assuming yes to both, if no one has a quick answer, you might edit in what step fails you and what error or condition prevents you from following the manual linked above to get Windows installed in Bootcamp.

comment Installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on Mountain Lion
I've not had experience with USB drives not being bootable due to Mac firmware. I have had to run another OS to bless a specific media once it's been restored from an ISO if it's not properly set up to be a Mac bootable drive.

remove thanks - edit the reason to be more objective and less about the OP's reasons for installing.

comment Install Windows with Bootcamp from a file?
Let's pick this apart. We strongly discourage two part questions since someone that knows a great answer to one part may not answer as they don't know the second. We don't restrict asking three questions. I'd edit out part B of this and then ask it as a second question. Once you have two good answers to each piece, you are of course free to ask how to combine the specific answers you choose as a third question.

comment Copying all my data to new disk, without resorting to Time Machine/Migration Assistant or cloning
Interesting question. By what criteria are you differentiating "all your data" from "crud"? I end up using a tool like WhatSize app to see what large things I want to clean up after migrating data to a new Mac and that seems to be a nice compromise between not inspecting 100,000 files and missing to transfer something I won't notice until 6 months later or so.

comment iPhone not charging in Windows. Driver without iTunes?
Most PC provide 500 mA to all USB before it even scans to determine the device type iirc so either the phone is too low on power to even run or perhaps it's an odd computer that does need a driver to even enable USB power in some cases.

Could you elaborate on where in settings this lies? The leading answer shows it in the … More tab of the app as opposed to settings.
