    How to create a bootable Windows 7 USB from Ubuntu?

    Hi, I'm currently using Ubuntu 13.10 and I need to install Windows 7 in dual boot. I already have the ISO image. Which program could I use to create a bootable Windows 7 USB disk using this ISO image I have?

    You can do it with Unetbootin.

    To install Unetbootin:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install unetbootin

    I already have unetbootin installed. Does it work with Windows ISO too? I thought it worked only with Linux ISOs.

    I am pretty sure I successfully used unetbootin to make a Windows 7 USB stick from the iso file - I remember being somewhat surprised that it worked.

    In the end I needed to borrow a notebook with Windows to use Rufus to create a bootable UEFI Windows 7 pen drive
