Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I am running Ubuntu 13.04 and I downloaded a Windows 7 Pro iso file and created a bootable USB with it using Unetbootin. My boot order is set to have USB first, but when I try to boot from the USB, it doesn't recognize it. I thought maybe the problem was the USB, so I tried another and still nothing. When I first installed Ubuntu, it was through a USB, so I don't know why it doesn't recognize it now.

Help please?

UNetBootin isn't capable of creating a bootable Windows flash drive, at least not as far as I know. Unfortunately, it seems that all of the programs that can create a Windows USB are Windows only.

Have you tried creating a bootable DVD?
