I want to burn windows iso to usb device in Ubuntu. I tried unetbooting but less luck. So I tried WinUSB.

WinUSB is a simple tool that enable you to create your own usb stick windows installer from an iso image or a real DVD.

This package contains two programs:
– WinUSB-gui: a graphical interface which is very easy to use.
– winusb: the command line tool.

WinUSB supports Windows Vista, Seven, 8 installer for any language and any version (home, pro…) and Windows PE.

To create Windows 7 USB installer follow below steps:

Step 1 : Add WinUSB repository:
Open a terminal and run following command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:colingille/freshlight
sudo apt-get update

Step 2 : Installing WinUSB
In the same terminal run following command

sudo apt-get install winusb

Step 3 : To create your bootable installer disc, select an ISO image or CD/DVD disc, and click Install.

Since WinUSB also works from the command line, you can create a Windows 7 or Windows Vista USB installer by following the command line format given below:

sudo winusb --format  

Once the USB is formatted using the above method, install a Windows partition and edit the Master Boot Record:

sudo winusb --install
