Reinstall windows 7 starter N150 plus currently running linux


I have a Samsung N150 plus which is currently running linux (xUbuntu) and I would like to revert it back to windows 7 starter edition, which is its original OS.
I have tried installing the windows 7 starter iso (Windows 7 Starter Full Version Free Download ISO - Softlay) and installing it to a usb with the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool, however when it starts to process it says:

Status: We are unable to copy your files. Please check your USB device and the selected ISO file and try again.

Any help would be much appreciated,
