I recently had to create a Windows 7 bootable USB flash drive for my girlfriend because she doesn't have a DVD-ROM, and I had to do it from Ubuntu as I don't have Windows (neither at work or at home).What I ended up on using is the good old (just a figure of speech) UNetbootin which is available for both Windows and Linux. It's in the Ubuntu repositories so to install it, search for it in the Ubuntu Software Center. For Windows and other Linux distributions, get it from HERE.
At first I didn't think it'll work since you can't choose Windows from the UNetbooting options, but it actually works and I've successfully installed Windows 7 on my girlfriend's computer using UNetbootin. Here's what I did:
Firstly, make sure you have a Windows 7 .ISO file (you can create it from the DVD) and a 4GB USB flash drive (or larger).
1. Install Gparted and format the USB drive to NTFS. In Ubuntu, use the following command to install Gparted:
To be able to format a drive to NTFS, you'll also need ntfs-3g - install it using the following command:
sudo apt-get install gparted
sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g
To format the USB drive as NTFS, open Gparted via the System > Administration > GParted Partition Editor. Then select your USB drive from the top right drop-down. If you only have one hard disk, your USB drive should be "sdb". Now right click your USB drive in GParted and select "Unmount" and you'll then be able to select Partition > Format > ntfs. The drive will be formatted to NTFS in a few seconds.I'm not sure if UNetbootin will mark the drive as bootable as my USB drive already had the "boot" flag enabled from Gparted, so you may want to enable it too: right click the USB drive and select "Manage flags", then check the "boot" flag.
Then you'll have to mount the USB drive back. You can do it from the command line or Disk Utility (System > Administration > Disk Utility) but to keep things simple, you can just unplug the USB flash drive and plug it back in to the computer.
2. Some users have reported that some recent Unetbootin versions no longer let you select an USB drive formatted to NTFS and by formatting it to FAT, the Windows 7 installation fails. So here's what to do: download Unetbootin version 494 from HERE (version tested and it should work). Then, right click the downloaded Unetbootin file, select Properties and on the "Permissions" tab, check the "Allow executing file as program" box. Then simply double click it and it should open.
Using this (494) Unetbootin version, you have an option to "Show all Drives" which lets you select the NTFS formatted drive and write the Windows 7 ISO onto it. With newer version, this option is no longer available.
3. Open UNetbootin, select "Diskimage" and then browse for your Windows 7 ISO file.
Now check the "Show all drives" box and select your USB drive from the list at the bottom of the Unetbootin dialog. For me, that's "/dev/sdb1" but it might be different for you (you should know this from Gparted which you've used to format the USB drive under step 1),Now simply click the "OK" button and wait for the files to be copied to the USB drive. After Unetbootin is done, you can use the USB stick to install Windows 7 on any computer that supports booting from an USB drive.

Distribution version of ubuntu on USB
on June 10, 2017
Ran as stated, I am not a UNIX guru took a little bit of experimentation to boot as there are 3 selections at the time of boot.Limited documentation. I purchased for the purpose of installing a cryptocurrency wallet on a system that is not continuously connected to the Internet.
I found that while one can install applications on the Ubuntu operating system desktop that boots from this USB... that is not the purpose of this device... when you reboot you will find that the applications you installed are no longer there. (As I stated before, I am not a UNIX guru) That is because this is an Ubuntu distribution version on USB... you will need to use this USB to create a bootable operating system on ANOTHER USB. Only after this will you be able to install programs that are static and remain on the bootable USB. Best instructions for this are on YouTube Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate 6 0 2 2 Crack
