First thing to do is convert the .nrg file to ISO. To do that you need to install nrg2iso.

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get install nrg2iso

Once installed type the command below to do the conversion:

nrg2iso win7.nrg win7.iso

Once that is done, then look the How to install WinUSB, to create the bootable USB under Ubuntu.
