Missing Operating System 'Windows 7 Boot USB'

Hi guys,

So normally I'm quite good at this stuff but this ones got my stumped.

So I created a Windows 7 Bootable USB on Ubuntu using 'YUMI' The USB was formatted to NTFS and ISO loaded on using Yumi. I am able to see all the files on there on the Ubuntu Explorer however when trying to boot from USB at boot I just get a quick message saying 'Missing Operating System' then it carries on booting into Ubuntu....

I've tried formatting the drive as both FAT32 & NTFS.

Help?!

Forgot that I said anything... I use the tool Rufus to put the ISO onto the USB drive. For some reason all the other tools I used did not work.

You can download Rufus here: Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way
