Shorouky,
Sorry for the delay in responding again. I've been trying to confirm some information for you. I'm still waiting on some responses from my "network" but the general vibe I'm getting right now is that you should not try to apply for an E2 if you enter the country (US) on a visa waiver program. The way you are talking about being able to be here for 3 months suggests you are talking about the visa waiver form that you can fill out on the plane.

If you want to apply for any kind of "work" visa you want to do it from a "B" visa....You can get one of those from the London Embassy fairly easily. If I get any more information I will get back to you.

Thanks for the advice but getting a B visa in the UK isn't a realistic option as I live in Egypt and don't have a residence in the UK. I wonder whether I could get one from the British Embassy here in Cairo?

Can you get a B from the US Embassy/Consulate in Cairo?
