Trying to get a Windows 7 ISO to be written to a bootable USB from my Ubuntu installation, but it seems all the USB creators are for writing other Linux distributions, and the ones for Windows can only be RUN in Windows. Catch 22, right? I'm debating setting up a VM to run the Windows usb creator, but would prefer not to have to install the accursed Not Operating System twice in one day.
