Windows 7: New mobo, couldn't reinstall windows

25 May 2016   #11

windows 64 bit

Ι have pc's, 2 of them (1 laptop and the main pc ).
Both are with elementaryOS(linux) which means i can't use rufus as far as i know since it's for windows
I need any win7 version so i can upgrade to win10, 64 bit with English language

Windows 7 Professional x64, Arch Linux

I just looked up Etcher and I don't see any explicit indication it can create a bootable Win 7 install USB from ISO.

It looks like UNetBootin can do the job; this may help. Otherwise I'm sure googling 'Windows 7 usb linux' will dig up something else useful.

windows 64 bit

Problem solved.
Problem was due to burning the iso on usb. I managed to burn it via RUFUS from a windows pc in uni and it worked. After that i had problem with disk, where i couldn't install the windows. Made a disk cleaning and it worked, now i have already installed motherboard/graphics card drivers and I'm downloading windows10.
Thanks in advance for every kind of help.
Have a nice day
