Unfortunately, unetbootin does not support Windows ISOs.

To create a bootable Windows USB from Ubuntu, you need to use winusb.

Run the below commands on terminal to install WinUSB.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:colingille/freshlight
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install winusb

boot in to ubuntu and make windows7 bootable pendrive. you need windows7 iso image for this.

open Ubuntu software center and install unetbootin.

then use unetbootin to burn iso into pendrive ( this link explains how to burn iso in windows but same applies in ubuntu). then boot into pendrive by pressing F12(may be F8 or F2 in some) in most computers. Then click install windows. backup your data before you install windows.
