You can not create a bootable Windows 7 USB with Unetbootin as the snapshot you shared, more over the option to select ISO is not selected in your snapshots

  • Thats because I did this only for the snapshot. So what are my options? – Oliver Schöning Mar 16 '13 at 5:00
  • ok what steps did you take to create bootable Windows 7 on USB , ie which software and what steps you took that can give some clue as where you were stuck – Registered User Mar 16 '13 at 5:02
  • I am stuck at: Got the Windows ISO, and a 8GB USB stick. And UNetbootin on my Ubuntu – Oliver Schöning Mar 16 '13 at 5:04
  • no Unetbootin I have tried myself earlier and it did not worked I googled google.co.in/search?q=install+windows+8+from+usb and came with a few links you will have to try some other solution I did not had success with Unetbootin in case you want to format your partition to fat32 use a command sudo cfdisk this will show your USB mounted some where in fileysystem from there you can format – Registered User Mar 16 '13 at 5:23
  • FATAL ERROR: Bad logical partition 6: enlarged logical partitions overlap Press any key to exit cfdisk. on sudo cfdisk – Oliver Schöning Mar 16 '13 at 5:26
