No, no, no!
This cannot work. The ISO is an actual disc in digital format that is bootable, put it on you HD and it is just another file - there is no way it can boot your machine. I like the question though. Theoretically, if you format that drive as a System Disk and extract the ISO onto the drive, provided everything landed in the right place it might work. Do Linux have something like the DOS DISKCOPY program? Used correctly that might do it. But I am dead certain that the essentials will not land in the right place.
It takes a bit of mind bending to grasp what the ISO really is. That is also why most people have trouble burning the thing correctly the first time.
