I followed the same process which mentioned in below link to create USB stick for windows:

How can I create a Windows bootable USB stick using Ubuntu?

But WinUSB throws following error while syncing:

enter image description here

Please help.



Try dd command.

The dd command copies a file, converting the format of the data in the process, according to the operands specified.


if=FILE -- Read from file instead of stdin.

of=FILE -- Write to file instead of stdout

bs=BYTES -- Read and write bytes at a time.

count=BLOCKS -- Copy only input blocks.

sync -- Use synchronized I/O for metadata.


Open a terminal.

Run it:

sudo -i

fdisk -l  (Identify your usb-stick, suppose is /dev/sdb)

dd if=/path-to-your-iso/Win_7_64Bit.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M; sync

Note: Always clearly identify the usb-stick with fdisk -l command, improperly entering the wrong values could inadvertently overwrite the data on the hard drive.
