I'm trying to install Windows 8.1 via Flash Drive, currently using Ubuntu.
* The ISO file is mounted to a 16GB hard-drive formatted with FAT32. I used GPart Partition to do this.
* It is flagged as a bootable device in Disk Utility and GPart, and is the top on my boot settings in my BIOS
* I am NOT trying to make this dual-boot, or make this a bootable Windows flash drive, just trying to install Windows via the Flash Drive itself - that's all - format over Ubuntu
* The Autorun.inf, as well as the Bootmgr file are present on the flash drive
* Ubuntu version 12.04 LTS
Upon booting from it it immediately brings me to the error screen saying, "this is not a bootable disk. please insert a bootable floppy"
Research/Googling only led to results saying the hard-drive crashed but this is not the case. It's booting the flash drive obviously, just failing. Which before I get asked, yes it is functional - which should be obvious since I've gotten to this point. Lol.
