You have to put/burn the iso file of Windows 7 Ultimate onto the stick with a program like Rufus.

You just can`t have the iso file on the stick, it won`t be bootable.

Rufus won't work on the Linux OS he'll have to to find a program on mint that will create a bootable Windows ISO on a usb stick. Not any program will work as I've been down this road once before.

Here's one you can read for the Mint OS

He doesn`t have to create the installer on Linux

His specs say he`s running Ultimate.

Boot from the installer to run the clean command on the target disk, this will wipe any linux code.

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
